ORGANISERS of Malvern's annual May Day Parade are appealing for stewards to enable the event to go ahead.

The parade, organised by Malvern Fringe, has been a regular feature of the town's calendar for several years. It involves brief closures of some roads in the town centre to allow the parade to pass through.

This year it is due to take place on Saturday, April 30. May Day committee member Owen Morgan, who is in charge of organising the closures, is appealing for volunteer helpers.

"It really is vital that we get stewarding for this event, otherwise it won't be able to go ahead," said Mr Morgan.

"All the stewards will have to do is to move the barriers and signs across the roads in question before the parade passes by, and then re-open the route again."

Anyone interested in helping should contact Mr Morgan on 01684 572447 or ironorchid
