Get close to the event as a volunteer marshal!

Organisers of the Step Short First World War commemorative event on Monday 4 August are looking for a few more volunteers to help make sure the day runs smoothly.

With His Royal Highness Prince Harry in town to dedicate the new Step Short arch on The Leas that day, it is vital that there are enough people to help with marshaling along the route.

Shepway District Council is  looking to recruit 200 marshals for the day and evening events taking place on The Leas and in the harbour area – and you could be just right for the job.

Marshals will have the task of ensuring that visitors to the town have a safe and enjoyable viewing experience during this ‘once in a lifetime’ event to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the 1914 – 18 war. You will need to give information to visitors and help with event safety.

To find out more about the role and to apply to become a volunteer marshal for the event, visit or telephone the council’s customer services team on 01303 853498.

The deadline for applications is 9 June 2014. Please note that there will be a briefing on Sunday 13 July.
