  • Gathering feedback from visitors

All volunteers will be provided with:

Activities are provided by professional contractors and their own staff to safely operate all equipment. However, volunteers are required to help with possible queues if the event is busy and provide a visible presence so visitors are aware the event is being organised by Go Forth Stirling.
