Dear John,
I wonder if the Wymondham Lions, or any other Lions Clubs, would be interested, willing and available to help our Rotary club who are going to help the CPRE.
On 28 July the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) and the Norfolk Heritage Building Trust (NHBT) are jointly holding a summer Festival, known as Aestival, at Raveningham Hall.  It will, as it has in the past, be a well-attended and prestigious event with activities, stalls, good food and drink, vintage car rally and so on.  I am assisting by organising people to help with the car parking arrangements.  Would your Club be willing and able to provide a few people to assist?  It will involve a short stint, or stints, during the day, directing cars to the area reserved for visitors and ensuring that the cars park effectively.  Free access to the event would be the immediate reward but also the knowledge that those who help are assisting the charitable causes of the CPRE and the NHBT.
Could you please let me know if you have some members who would be willing and able to help on the day.  Also do you know of any other organisations which might do that sort of thing?  The more people we can get the easier the task.
I would appreciate an answer as soon as you are able to do so.
In hope and anticipation….
Terry
