The Kowhai Festival Committee is appealing to the community to come forward and volunteer at the Huge Day Out on Saturday, October 28. Coordinator Shona Pickup says she needs a team of Festival Ambassadors to help out where needed. This can include everything from giving directions to minding lost children. No experience needed, just a big smile. There are two shifts for volunteers, from 9am-12 noon and again, from noon to 3pm. If you can help, call Shona on 425 4330.
