Volunteers - What to wear and bring on the day
Thank you for volunteering. Here are a few tips on how to make your day more enjoyable and perhaps safer too.
Wear clothing suitable for the day.
Work gloves is a good idea regardless of the weather. We handle metal poles and tables with sharp corners, not to mention plastic chairs that can pinch your fingers.
Expect everything from dry to wet conditions.
Torch or headlight.
During the winter months the under croft is very dark.
Summer is great but can also burn you to a crisp. Latest research says we can get a sunburn in even less sunlight than earlier thought.
Loose clothing such as scarfs.
We do not have rotating machinery, but it is always a good idea to NOT wear loose hanging clothes as you might get caught on something.
If in doubt, ask.
There are many seasoned volunteers at the markets. We would rather you ask one too many times than one too few.
