Secure your place in history! The Hall has been lovingly restored by our team of dedicated volunteers but we need people like you to help take care of a unique historic house and gardens and help open its doors to more visitors. Join our friendly volunteer team and share your existing experience and skills or learn new skills while you work in a beautiful setting.
Garden & Grounds Volunteers
Working with our expert gardeners you could be involved in planting, pruning, maintaining paths, or developing the plant nursery side of our productive walled garden, with sales of plants supporting our continued garden development. Our varied outdoor volunteer roles aim to conserve precious natural environments for people and for wildlife. Get involved in tasks like woodland management, maintaining fencing and pathways around our nature walks, protecting the natural habitats of our wide variety of local wildlife.
Museum & Front of House Volunteers
Our tour guides and room stewards are the friendly face that brings our history and rooms to life, welcoming visitors and answering their questions. We provide the training; you just need to have the passion and enthusiasm to share your interests in history, architecture or gardening with others. We generate valuable restoration and conservation funds by welcoming visitors to site on Open Days. In order for us to be able to open we need people to help with car parking, meeting & greeting our visitors on the admissions desk, coordinating children’s activities, manning our produce stalls, running our book shop, the possibilities are endless!
For more information about how to get involved please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01827 283095, or come along to our Volunteer Recruitment Day on Wednesday 8th March at 11am.
Becoming a Trustee
As a charitable trust we are governed by our Board of Trustees we are currently recruiting for new trustees, if you would like more information please look at our leaflet on Becoming a Trustee.
Many thanks for allowing me to be part of this. I have discovered a love of history that I didn’t know that I had. It is really lovely to get involved in projects and see them through from the beginning research stages to the final result as displays for visitors.
Jenny – Museum Volunteer
I enjoy the company, I like sharing my knowledge and learning new skills from others. It is more fun than staring at the blank wall of a gym.
I used to come walking here while I was still working and sadly saw it deteriorate before my eyes. I knew when I retired I wanted to become part of the team who breathed new life into the place. I really like being here and enjoy the company of the other volunteers.
