East District Open

 

Hi there

We are looking for volunteer stewards for the East District Grand Prix swimming meet at the Royal Commonwealth Pool Edinburgh from Friday 29- Sunday 31st  May 2015. This is one of the bigger events in the District calendar and we are expecting large numbers of swimmers and spectators. 
 
                     We are particularly looking for help for the morning sessions.

No previous experience is necessary, and this might suit parents of swimmers or older / former swimmers or other young people willing to help out and get a chance to see the top swimmers from Scotland and the UK up close at the event for free. This could be used towards Duke of Edinburgh or other volunteering awards or college experience.
 
Duties will include; 
  • directing spectators to their seats, and escorting them out at the end of each session
  • ensuring stairs and walkways are kept clear 
  • assisting pool staff to keep the spectator and balcony swimmer area tidy
  • monitoring barrier areas between poolside, swimmers area and spectators area,
Volunteers can choose as many or as few shifts as they are able to attend , and if they attend two consecutive sessions they are entitled to a meal voucher for the on site café to cover their meal break.
The shifts are: 
Friday 29                       14.15 hrs to finish approx. 19:30hrs
Sat 14/Sun 15                 07:15hrs to finish approx. 11:45hrs 
                                          11:30hrs to finish approx. 16.00hrs 
                                          15:45hrs to finish approx. 19:30hrs
          
Please respond directly to me at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .uk  with names and contact details of any volunteers by Tuesday  26th May and which sessions they are willing to attend.
 If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07957 994 672 . Many thanks for any and all offers of help to keep this event running smoothly and safely and to ensure all spectators have a great time at the event.
