The organisers of the Palmers Green Festival have issued an appeal for help of a very practtcal kind.

Palmers Green Festival seeks relief

palmers green festival logoFestival organisers are worried that its ongoing success might cause some discomfort to visitors. Organising volunteer Angie Smith explained, “For a number of years our portaloos have been funded by a hugely generous £600 annual donation by a Palmer’s Green resident. Because the festival is developed, organised and funded entirely by members of our local community and that individual has now left the area, we’ve been caught short. We’re already paying over £1000 every festival for litter collection and there are loads of other costs such as insurance to meet. Our long time community sponsor, Winkworth estate agency, already picks up many other costs so we can put on a fun and free event for everyone.”

It would be a great relief for the organisers, and we dare say festival attendees, if a sponsor were to come forward willing to make good the costs of six extra loos and one special access portaloo. Director Philip Chard added, “Our fun and free mission must cover the whole event”. Festival organisers can be contacted via the web site or social media. A sponsor supporting the 2018 theme of Health and Wellbeing theme would be most appreciated.

The Palmers Green Festival takes place each year in Broomfield Park N13 on the first Sunday in September.
