Thank you to everyone who marshalled parades last year; we couldn’t run events requiring road closures without you! We’ll need help with the road closures listed above in 2018, please contact the following Committee members if you can help again or for the first time:
Jo Bothamley Tel No: 07730043646 or jobot79@icloud.com
John Hallows Tel No: 07850534002 or john.hallows’sky.com

Thank you everyone who helped us last year to marshal, as any local already knows, wakes week simply can’t happen without without a team of willing and reliable volunteers who help us to put on fun, enjoyable but above all safe events. One of the key volunteers roles is that of a marshal. Volunteer marshals are required for all the main events throughout the week that require a temporary road closure. Although we have a good number on the committee, not all of us can be used as marshals for each event. As a volunteer marshal we ask for a couple of hours of your time to help us runt the events and keep it safe for everyone taking part. You will be fully briefed before each event by the head marshal and key personnel supervising the event, you will be two way radio contact with two way radios, if you need assistance is needed it can be summoned quickly, as a volunteer marshal you will be given a hi vis jacket so you can be identified and reinforce your role as a key member of the safety team. Due to the nature of the role we can only accept people aged 18 years and over, if you are nearly 18 years of age and would like to help as a marshal please speak to a member of the wakes committee
If you are willing to put your name forward for one or more events please email myself at jobot79@icloud.com or phone 07730043646 by 15th May. In addition, if you know of anyone who also may be willing to help us, please pass on this email.
Thanks in advance.
Jo Bothamley Head Marshal

Carnival Floats
We’re really hoping many of you have already caught the Tidza Wakes ‘bug’ and are planning house or street decorations, fancy dress costume or the theme of your float for the Carnival Parade! Our aim is to make Wakes enjoyable and fun but also safe for everyone involved or spectating, particularly the Carnival Parade on Saturday 30th June which relies on brightly decorated floats, fancy dress costumes, musical accompaniment and Bands to give it the WOW factor. But here comes the important bit…….with growing interest from people entering floats in the Carnival, the Committee needs everyone entering a float to register before 5 pm on Friday 29th June. Then we can pre-plan the procession, reduce waiting and make sure the procession showcases both floats and Bands. It may not be possible to include floats in the Parade that have not registered in advance. When you register we will need basic details such as the type of vehicle, the theme, whether it will have music playing on the float and insurance. We cannot insure vehicle owners against a motor accident that occurs during the Parade, whilst a motor accident is an unlikely event and our insurance covers all other types of accidents or damage, we need you to inform your vehicle insurer that you intend to use the vehicle as a float so you have the correct cover on Carnival Day. If this is unwelcome news, please, please DON’T abandon your plans but DO get in contact with the Committee to discuss your concerns, we can’t solve every issue but would like the opportunity to try! To register your float, please contact Andrew on andrew [at] tideswellwakes [dot] info or see any member of the team before 5 pm on Friday 29th June.
