We are planning to continue the now well established tradition in the Great Barn of the Christmas crib tableau, Christmas Eve procession and carol service. All this requires the help of volunteers to team up to put it all together. However, this year, after nearly twenty years, three of the team have retired from the project and are looking to hand over and pass the baton to new faces to succeed them for Christmas 2018 and thereafter.
The three roles are for a coordinator who will look after the relationships with the National Trust, The District Council, Police, St Giles Church as well as Health and Safety and overall project integration. The second is for the maintenance of the figures, stable and crib and the installation of the tableau in the Barn. The third vacancy is for a wardrobe specialist to prepare the existing costumes and dressing of all the figures in the tableau. We are looking for volunteers to fill these positions ready to prepare and assemble the tableau on the weekend of 15th/16th December ready for public access until twelfth night when the tableau will be disassembled and packed away for Christmas 2019. Extra helping hands in addition to the above will always be very welcome.
Would anyone who is interested in participating in this team to keep this traditional event alive please contact:
John Rounce. Tel:01367 241934. Email email@example.com
Richard May. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
We can then set up a meeting to discuss the way forward and arrange handovers and briefings.
We look forward to hearing from you.
