Brighton Jetty Sculptures could not happen without a huge number of volunteers.
Aside from the totally volunteer committee, we have more than 100 volunteers who do everything from:
. help to set up the event - cataloguing the sculptures as they arrive, liaising with the artists, placing the name markers out by the sculptures, helping with catering at our functions; . staff the marquee on Bindarra Reserve in 2-hour stints from 8am-8pm most days of Sculptures (12 days); . staff the clubrooms in 2-hour stints from 8am-8pm most days of Sculptures (12 days); . walk along the foreshore handing out catalogues and People's Choice voting slips and being available to answer questions;
and many other activities.
If you would like to be involved in a fun community activity that is widely considered to be Adelaide's premier sculptures exhibition, while helping to raise funds for the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club and have a couple of hours spare, please email our Volunteer Co-ordinator Andrea Bodey.
Brighton Jetty Sculptures Hot Weather Policy 2021
Regardless of the temperature, volunteers are encouraged to follow the ‘Sun Smart’ guidelines from the Cancer Council SA’s website:
Clothing to cover as much skin as possible
Wear a hat that protects the head, face, ears and neck
Stay in the shade whenever possible
Drink water on a regular basis
If the forecast temperature for Brighton is 38 or above on the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) website the day prior to volunteering, the marquees will be closed between 1-7pm and the allocated volunteers do not have to attend.
If the forecast temperature for Brighton is 38 or above on the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BOM) website the day prior to volunteering, the Esplanade walkers do not have to attend between 1-7pm. In addition, the walkers may choose not to attend when the temperature is less than 38, but please text the Volunteer Coordinator.
When the forecast temperature is 35-37 degrees, (or on request), we encourage all volunteers if they wish, to rotate between positions to take advantage of the shaded areas and fans. People who choose to volunteer in the marquees due to limited mobility will NOT be expected to do the Esplanade walk.
There will be large fans set up in the marquees and side flaps raised to aid in ventilation. The volunteer seating can be placed just outside the marquee in the shade or an area of your choice. On weekends we will have access to the first aid services of the Brighton Surf club.
Walkers just need to have a presence on the Esplanade – they are not expected to walk for 2 hours. Sitting under a tree on one of the seats for 2 hours is acceptable at any time, but is especially recommended on hot days.
We value our volunteers and don’t expect ANY volunteer to do anything that will jeopardise their health/wellbeing or that they feel uncomfortable with.
