This summer the Wolds Outdoor Festival will be returning for its second year. South Ormsby Estate in the Wolds will be hosting the launch event Open Weekend on 20th and 21st May. The event aims to draw in about 2000 visitors on the day.
As an organisation West Wolds U3A has been invited to be there on Saturday 20th to showcase both the U3A movement and also our own range of activities and groups. Already a number of groups have come up with suggestions for how they would like to do this.
What we are looking for is some support from the wider membership, group convenors and volunteers to help showcase our wonderful organisation. We want to reach out to people who may not know that we exist.
I am asking you to see whether you would be willing to offer your help on the day to talk to people who pass by our stand, to possibly put on a small activity as a taster session during the day. Your group might even want to put on an activity during the three weeks of the festival itself. Even if you can’t be there yourself, you might have a small gazebo or garden furniture we could use on our pitch on the 20th May.
On the Launch Day itself you’d not be expected to be there all day. You’d have some time to enjoy the event yourself. You’d be supported by our wonderful committee and other brilliant volunteers.
If this is something that you believe you could help with then please contact me so we could discuss it further. Please don’t think your group doesn’t belong in the outdoors; don’t forget that many of our groups did exactly that during the Pandemic.
