VOLUNTEERS are needed to help marshal the Sudbury Fun Run and Walk on Good Friday, 2nd April.

The run has been a major charity event in town since the early 1980s, and due to new UK Athletics regulations, 75 marshal points are required, many more than in previous years.

The majority of marshal points simply require an official presence to give early awareness to drivers and the public, and ensure runners and walkers remain safe while taking part - and are moving in the correct direction.

The major areas where marshals are needed are Bures Road, Hedgerows and Shawlands Avenue. Any individuals or groups that are able to help on the morning of the events would be welcome. All marshals, who need to be at least 16 years old, will be given full instructions in advance of the events, and will be finished by 11am.
