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 chairman, committee members and even the joint-managers getting involved as well as regular supporters alongside the professional stewards.  We are lucky to have the professionals 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.

 

Below is a list of jobs that need doing regularly on matchdays, if you are able to help at any time, and for any length of time, please get in touch with John Porter or Adrian Gomm who are on the new operational committee.  Please be aware that some of the jobs required will change once phase 2 has finished.
