As the nights draw in, people are preparing to celebrate the winter festivals.
One of the first in Bedford’s will be Diwali – the festival of light – and the organisers of a free event are looking for volunteers.
The Bedford Indian Community is putting on an indoor festival at The Corn Exchange and needs help with various roles, including backstage hands and housekeeping.
Community spokesman Marie-Ange Comerford-Raillon added: “We are also looking for people who can do Henna and face painting, and volunteers to guide and help people during the event.
“In exchange, they will get free food and drinks, and a great show to watch!”
The event is from 3pm to 8pm, on Sunday, October 26.
To volunteer, call Marie-Ange on 07787774167.
