Before the day
These people have offered to come on the Wednesday before the open day to help with any last minute preparations:
Promoting the event, eg. making and distributing flyers, posting adverts, contacting other organisations, etc.
On the day
Greeters who will welcome newcomers on the day, offer tours, and share membership information. Be warned: people who did this last year say that it was a big job, so they had little time remaining to show off their projects during the day.
Chunky has other projects to bring (to confirm by email)
