Arbour Park Volunteering

 

The Trust is very keen to promote the work of volunteers at Arbour Park.  The hard work of many volunteers has kept the Club going during the years at Windsor and Beaconsfield, both on matchdays and at other events and meetings.  Now that the Club has returned to the town, the Club is responsible for more than during the ground sharing years.

 

The efficient completion of these jobs will allow the Club to provide an excellent matchday experience for supporters and reduces the overall workload that can often fall to the same people.  On matchdays you will see the army of volunteers getting involved many hours before kick off, during and after the match, which includes the entire Trust board.  We are lucky to have the professional stewards to help however the number available to us vary depending on the needs of other local clubs.  The efficiency of the set up is particularly important on Tuesdays when time is more limited.

 

In January 2018, the Club took over the running of all catering facilities at Arbour Park.  This means that the Club is benefitting from money spent behind the bar and kitchen.  In order to make a success of this, the Club requires volunteers to run the bar/kitchen/tea bar on matchdays and non matchdays.  If you can join our group, get in touch.

 

Please do not expect others to step up, many of the current volunteers take on several jobs on matchdays, it's not fair to expect the same people to do everything, so if you can help, please get in touch.  Without the volunteers, we have no matchday.

 

Below is a list of jobs that need doing regularly on matchdays, updated since the completion of the facility.  If you are able to help at any time, and for any length of time, please get in touch with Kay Lathey (gensec@sloughtownfc.net) who will help to set the right people with the right jobs.

The Club requires these volunteers from 11am to 7pm on Saturday matches and 5.45pm to 10.30pm on Tuesdays.  Even if you can't do the whole time, but you'd like to help, please get in touch.
