Planet South Bank has received the following message from Graham Meiklejohn – e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be a Steward on the day.
“The Bishopthorpe Street Traders Association are getting ready preparation of the next Bishy Road Street Party.
This will be held on Sunday 6 July. The street party will commence immediately after the Tour de France Grand Depart has passed Bishopthorpe Road around midday. The party will continue until 1900.
We are currently seeking Stewards for the event. We would prefer people who would be available for the duration of the event but are open to all offers of support.
As the city will be the focus of global attention for the Grand Depart, all Stewards for the Street Party will receive a day of training provided by the City of York Council. This will be along the lines of the training provided for the Games Makers at the Olympic Games. We welcome the support the Council has made to facilitating this training. This will be to a certified level which will be recognised by other event organisers.
If you would you like to volunteer for this role please reply to this e-mail and we will be in contact shortly with further details. If you have any queries please let me know and I will be pleased to respond to then.
We hope you will be able to join us for another great community day on Bishopthorpe Road.
Graham email@example.com “
