Kicking your heels post lockdown? Recently graduated or still on furlough?
The Gardens have always been dependent on a fantastic band of happy and hardworking volunteers. Lockdown has been hard on many of them who are itching to come back to enjoy the friendship and the beauty of the site. It’s lovely to welcome many back, but others for various reasons cannot comeback, yet.
We are learning what we can do post lockdown – there are operational changes and we are having to rethink a lot of the ways we provide services and activities. This means we need to reach out for more volunteers too.
Perhaps you’re looking to stretch your experiences for your cv or looking for another way to ‘give back’.
Currently we have new opportunities for volunteers to help our historic Gardens Charity and to accumulate a range of visitor experience and front of house skills.
Our front of house entry sales and small shop needs happy, confident ‘welcomers’ 5 days a week.
We hope too, to be extending some of our family activities and outdoor evening entertainment when we re-allowed.
We are looking for volunteers who can commit to some training and either a regular day each week/fortnight or are flexible over the summer for 5 days or more
Later in the season there may also be Gardening opportunities.
