Would you like to be the ‘Keeper of the bells’?  We have thousands of them!  You would store the bells, post them out when they are sold, and manage the stock on behalf of the Treasurer.  Please contact us for more info.

If you have skills and time to offer support, we would love to hear from you, especially in these areas: Teaching morris and related activities in schools; Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion; Marketing; Annual Financial Auditing; JMO Insurance Negotiation & Management.

There are plenty of other opportunities to volunteer towards the work of the Morris Federation as a co-opted member of the Committee, or just as someone who helps out with things from time to time.  It can be for a short time, or longer term.
