BIDEFORD Town Council is on the lookout for volunteers to help marshall at the town's annual Christmas lights switch-on event.

An estimated 15,000 filled the quayside and High Street in 2008 - and the council is expecting large crowds at this year's event, taking place on Saturday, November 28.

Town clerk George McLauchlan said: "We're really struggling for marshalls this year; the event has grown so big in such a short amount of time that we need some more help."

Volunteers would need to be available to help out from around 4-8pm.

To offer to help, telephone Mr McLauchlan on (01237) 428938.
