  5. Change the password on the password reset form to something you will remember.
  6. Now you have created your account you are ready to volunteer!
  7. The sign-up sheets are private to registered volunteers only and are hidden until you log-in to the website. When you are logged in a sign-up sheets link appears in the menu bar.

You can go back to the sign up sheets at any time to add further sessions, or to remove yourself from a session. Please remember to give as much notice as possible if you are cancelling a session to give time for a replacement to be found.
