The organisers of a popular community festival have put out an urgent call for a volunteer to help with administration.

The committee of the Loughton Festival, which celebrates heritage, literature and the arts, is asking for a volunteer, who must live in or near the town and have internet access, to come forward.

The festival is due to start in March and the programme is still being finalised.

Anyone who can help should email organiser Sue Taylor on loughtonfestival@aol.com.
