NOVEMBER 9 Tue 7.30 Pigs Ear Beer Festival Planning Meeting White Hart E1 4TP Tue 13 8pm Branch Meeting, Ye Olde Mitre 1 Ely Place (off Hatton Garden)  EC1N 6SJ 20 Tue 7.30 Pigs Ear Beer Festival Planning Meeting Rose & Crown E17 4SA.   Hello fellow CAMRA members It will soon be time for the 2018 Pig’s Ear Beer and Cider Festival which takes place as usual in early December at the Round Chapel in Hackney. Once again we are looking for over 150 willing volunteers to take on the full range of jobs at the festival. Without you we could not have the festival. We have attached a volunteer form in word and RTF formats which includes an explanation of job roles. PLEASE fill in ALL the details on the form. It is important that we have this chance to check and update our records. You can return it either as an email attachment or in the post. We welcome all help. In particular we very much look for help in the setting up and taking down period so do consider if you could be available. We are also looking at anyone who might be interested in helping Team Tango with stewarding duties. Finally, there are a couple of periods where we also need more volunteers. These are late evenings (8 till closing) and Saturday all day. Therefore even if you cannot help at other times but can on these then that would be very much appreciated. Please note that we are normally over subscribed for bar work, particularly during the day. If you indicate only bars as your preferred areas of work then you may not be required for all the shifts you tick. In these instances we will let you know in advance on which shifts you will be needed. If you haven’t worked at a Beer Festival before, why not give it a go? Although working at the festival is hard work, it can also be fun with the chance to engage with our many visitors to the festival. Volunteers are allowed free beer (within reason) and also receive food vouchers to use at the food concessions at the festival. You will get training for any role you choose and there will be plenty of experienced people about. Please think about volunteering, you will be made most welcome! We look forward to hearing from you.   Pig's Ear Volunteering Team
