As KOAST is a voluntary organisation, including the Committee, we ask all members to do anything they can to help – selling Trail Guides, helping collect information for social media, putting up the signs, collecting raffle prizes and heaps of other things.

The Committee has formed work groups with each committee member being responsible for a particular area so if you have particular skills in any of these or can assist with anything pl;ease get in contact with us.  We do ask everyone who exhibits to help in some way otherwise it becomes an enormous amount of work for a very few!
