New committee members needed!

25 Jul 2016 News No Comments

We are looking for volunteers to join the committee that organises the Highland Games in Perth. We are a registered Scottish charity run entirely by volunteers. As well as working very hard during Games week, the committee meets six times a year to plan this great local event, in liaison with bodies like the Highland Games Associations for Scotland and Perthshire, the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association and the Competing Pipers Association.

One of the Fair City’s most popular community events, the Games are normally on the second Sunday in August. The committee needs people who can help with the wide range of activities needed to run a successful event. This includes administrative tasks like booking suppliers and equipment and liaising with judges and officials. Other key roles include handling publicity for the Games, including the website and social media.  It can be hard work but it is great fun!

Anyone who’d like to sign up should email secretary@perthhighlandgames.co.uk for more information. Please include a brief summary of your background and the type of help you are able to offer. There’s a lot more information about the Games on this pages website.
