Incredible Edible Coordinator
For nearly 10 years, Wendy Stayte has been acting as coordinator (voluntarily). As she steps down next year we are looking to recruit one, or several, people to fill the role(s) of co-ordinator and gardener, to support the continuation of this fantastic project. Please click for more details.

The TTT Film Festival is coordinated by a dynamic and experienced volunteer-led Steering Group who work closely together to deliver a high quality festival focusing on themes such as community, environment, resilience – and more. If you'd like to help at the next festival please contact them via the TTT Film Festival website.
