Our Wonderful Stewards

May 7, 2012   //   by Lynne Morgan   //   News  //  No Comments

A huge THANK-YOU to all the stewards who worked so hard in the run-up, clear-up and during the Festival.

Their job was not made any easier by the terrible rain on Sunday and the encroaching mud on Monday but they all persevered without any complaints and carried on smiling!

The stewards act as Ambassadors to the Festival and the event would not be able to function without them.  This year there was a special air of camaraderie (perhaps in the face of adversity!) and I know several new friendships were germinated which will last long after the Festival.

We always have a valiant group of regular helpers who return year after year but this year we had many new faces who I hope enjoyed the experience enough to return again.

We would love to hear from you with your comments, suggestions or just your experience of working at the Southwell Festival. Either download a Feedback form or email us.

….and to finish a quote from a satisfied customer as she was leaving on Monday:

‘the stewards are not just brilliant ….. they are bloody fantastic!!’
