Can you help town go for gold?

DO you have what it takes to show Alnwick at its best on the world stage?

The town council is now looking to employ someone to help co-ordinate a once-in-a-lifetime festival next summer to celebrate the visit of the Olympic torch.

Discussions are currently under way to agree the format of the festival, which will run for a whole week up to and including the arrival of the torch and involve a wide range of community groups. The post is part-time for 15 hours a week and will run until the end of June 2012.

A copy of the job description and an application form can be obtained by sending an email to, or on 01665 714922. The closing date for applications is October 21.
