Environment group seeks volunteers for festival

The Peninsula Environment Group is seeking volunteers to help with its Woytopia sustainable living festival to be held in September.

Event manager Mr Julian Bowker said the group was looking for volunteers to help plan and organise the festival.
The festival, to be held on September 6, aimed to provide an opportunity for residents to find out about local environment groups and initiatives in a festival atmosphere, with live music, presentations, food and market stalls and children’s entertainment and activities.
“We have opportunities for volunteers to help organise different aspects of the festival, such as our eco-markets, children’s activities or our music program,” Mr Bowker said.
Woytopia was first held in 2010 and has been held every two years since.
The 2019 festival had to be cancelled due to flooding of the site but a special Woytopia at the Market day was organised in conjunction with Umina Markets.
“Woytopia has previously been held in October but we have brought the date forward slightly to September this year because the Coastal Twist Festival will take place in October,” Mr Bowker said.
“With the Oyster Festival in November, it should be an exciting spring for the Peninsula,” he said.
Mr Bowker said venue details were still to be confirmed.
