The principal role of the Field Warden is to provide immediate help and support to the wide range of people visiting the Eisteddfod. From helping people to find their way around the site to handling lost property, the Field Wardens are there to help the public enjoy their experience of the Eisteddfod. In addition, in the event of an emergency the Field Wardens have a responsibility to assist and direct the public to safe areas. We are looking for people who are happy to help and assist others and interact with the diverse audience attending the Eisteddfod. Most of the time Field Wardens are up and about the site and so the days are broken up into 2 hour shifts and you can volunteer onto the rota depending on your availability.
This is a new, exciting and enjoyable role in the Eisteddfod and we are looking to establish a core team of people to take this role forward.
This role is responsible for stewarding school parties on and off the Eisteddfod field on the Tuesday and Thursday of Eisteddfod week and on additional days if required. It involves meeting and greeting the school parties on the coach park and directing them up and onto the field. On departure, the bussing stewards escort them safely from the field to their coach. Shifts are: 8.15 am to 11 am and 1.15pm to 3.30pm.
Communications volunteers are a vital part of the Eisteddfod. They provide essential communication support to ensure the smooth running of the event, passing key information across the various committees to keep the music flowing and liaising with the emergency services in the event of minor/ major incidents and accidents.
Commitment varies, but it would be usual for a volunteer to offer around 10 hours over the course of the 6 day event, in the form of 2-5 hour sessions in the Grounds Communications Radio Centre which operates from 8am to around 11pm daily. Training will be provided on the job whilst assisting an experienced communications volunteer.
Typical tasks include:
* Working within the communication protocols to ensure the right people get the right information at the right time.
* Receiving, recording and passing of messages to the relevant person(s). Either via the telephone network or monitoring the two-way radio base station.
* Issuing and logging radio allocations, and maintaining charged battery supplies.
