At the popular Faversham Transport Weekend we always need willing volunteers to help us marshal this event. This year we would like our Faversham residents to consider being "Faversham Greeters". The event attracts thousands of visitors to Faversham and we want to ensure that all our visitors are looked after and made to feel welcome. Can you offer a few hours of your precious time over the weekend of 21st and 22nd May 2016? We know you all have busy lives but we would really appreciate a few hours of your time to help us showcase Faversham.
