Register your Interest

Friends of Homefield Park is a local community group dedicated to the upkeep and regeneration of Homefield Park, Worthing. We aim to maintain and improve our park by representing the interests of all who use it and keeping up a line of communication with the local council.  We also organise annual community events such as picnics, cleanups and family fun days.

We've got big plans for the next 12 months and we want to shout about it - across the park using posters, in local magazines with adverts and on social media.

Can you help us get the message out there?

Do you want to build experience and have content for a portfolio?

We're looking for someone who wants to build their experience of communications and marketing by producing the following:

  • a poster for each of our events (6 annually)
  • a Facebook event online for each event (6 annually)
  • Set up a Social media management tool (help available to do this)
  • schedule Tweets and Facebook posts relating to the events
  • use our logo and communications to date to create a basic brand guidelines pack and templates

There are also additional projects available to take on relating to communications and marketing - and would be happy to take ideas from a volunteer.

  • write reasonably well (good spelling and grammar)

  • is keen to learn more and access training where possible
