Can You Help Make Parsons Green Fair a Huge Success?

Fulham Good Neighbours call on local people to volunteer at summer event

Fulham Good Neighbours are planning a bumper fair on Parsons Green on Saturday 7 July - and are callling on local people to help make it a huge success.

They are looking for local volunteers to act as Event Marshalls for four hours between 77am and 6pm on 7 July, to assist and reassure visitors, distribute event programmes, collect fees for some paid for activities, pick up rubbish and evacuate the fair in the event of an emergency.

They are also asking property owners to display an estate agent's board promoting the fair for one to two weeks before the event.
