Top 7 Reminders for Volunteers

1. Plan to arrive 30 minutes early for your shift to allow time to check-in and prepare.

2. Do not bring valuables to the site. Stable on the Strand is not responsible for mislaid or stolen items. Ensure essential items (such as licences, money, mobile phone) are stored safely.

3. Park your vehicle some distance from the site to enable our guests to park nearby.

4. On arrival: sign-in at the Volunteers Office using your Barcode. If required, collect your costume. Check in with your Area Leader for a briefing, set-up requirements, safety awareness, and prayer as we go out and serve the community.

5. At the end of your shift: Help clean up your area and pack away any items. Return your costume. Check out with your Area Leader for any additional tasks or updates.

6. As you leave: Swipe your barcode at the Volunteers Office to confirm you have finished your shift and are leaving the site.

7. Remember to smile – it is your greatest asset!
