Volunteer with us

Experienced carpenter? Avid gardener? Or just looking to put your spare time to good use? Consider joining our fantastic team of volunteers, without whom we simply couldn’t complete the work that we do.

If you would like to volunteer with us, we have plenty of activities for you to help us with from working on the park to in our shop. Below is a list of roles that we really need help with at the moment but if you think you can help us in any other way, and have read through the FAQs below, then please complete the enquiry form as we would love to hear from you.

Welcomer to the Trust

During weekends, school holidays and particularly bank holidays, we often need some extra assistance in helping to get all guests in efficiently. We’re after enthusiastic volunteers to welcome visitors with a warm smile, issue tickets on arrival and sell gifts from the fully stocked shop.

The best part about this role is that you get to tell visitors about your favourite things at the Trust and an invitation to our annual staff and volunteers evening of fun and games.

Gardening Club

Each Monday morning we have a dedicated group of volunteers who meet as part of the Gardening Club. They do a superb job of keep our plantlife looking fantastic, as well as ensuring that they make time for a good natter over a hot drink at the end of their shift. This group is always happy to welcome new members and is ideal for anyone with green fingers!

Conservation and Research

We do have some specific activities that give you an opportunity to get involved with our conservation and research work. Roles tend to be specific but we’re also always happy to hear from researchers about potential projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I enquire about becoming a volunteer?

If you think you fit one of the above roles then we would love to hear from you. Once you have read through these FAQs, please fill out the enquiry form below.

What happens next?

On selected dates throughout the year we hold informal meetings for anyone wishing to volunteer with us. These are simply a discussion as we really just want to find out a bit more about you and the sorts of tasks you are interested in getting involved with.

If you are successful, you will be asked for a contribution (£10.00) towards a Disclosure and Barring Service (previously CRB) check. Once this check has been carried out, we will be thrilled to welcome you into our team as one of our valued volunteers.

When and how often can I volunteer?

We are very flexible with when and how often you would like to volunteer although we do ask that you notify us when you plan to be in so that we can coordinate tasks accordingly. Some volunteers develop a regular, weekly schedule while others come on an ad hoc basis, so it is really up to you.

Voluntary hours are normally between 9am and 5:30pm although we will occasionally ask for some extra help at evening events.
