You are invited to our next meeting on 17 January

We are kicking off 2012 with a meeting to discuss several exciting activities. Do come along on Tuesday, 17 January at 7.30 pm at the Bristol Lawn Tennis Club. Everyone is welcome!

Key topics discussed will be:

Our new fireworks team needs you!

FORGS urgently need to find a volunteer to take on the role of CO-ORDINATOR for the FORGS Fireworks Display 2012. The job involves being the principle email liaison between our fantastic 8-strong Fireworks Committee members, setting up and chairing a handful of meetings (at the pub!), and co-ordinating the committee's work. The main effort will be in the summer term, and early autumn. Another parent, Harriet Davison, who has been doing the job until now, can brief you fully and show you the ropes. She's also happy to help share the workload from September. Please contact Harriet if you are interested on: harriet@whitbydavisontv.co.uk.

Our new car boot team needs you too!

FORGS needs help preparing the car boot sales which will start in April. Olivia is happy to oversee all of these roles and thanks to our work last year this is all in motion already:

ADVERTISING ROLE - update existing poster, copy, laminate and organise distribution. Contact primary schools. Ensure local free mags and papers are given updated copy in time for publication. Ensure advert in school newsletter and on website. Put up banner before event and retrieve after. Encourage sponsorship to increase revenue. Approx 2-3 hours per month during car boot season.

BOOKINGS ROLE - respond to emails (and phone calls if you wish) regarding queries and bookings. Keep a log of all bookings, and supply a final sellers list for each boot sale.

REFRESHMENTS ROLE - liaise with stock controllers and buy all items needed prior to each event. Encourage donations from local suppliers. Ensure all sundry items are available on the day. Organise a rota for each event to set up, serve and put away. Count monies after. Approx 2 hours prior to each event, plus day of sale.

If you are interested please contact Olivia on: forgscarbootsale@hotmail.com 

See you on 17th January!
