Secure your place in history!

Testimonials

“Volunteering is not about individual achievement, its teamwork. The herb garden and Walled Garden have been transformed. I know exactly which parts I planted myself, like the poppies and the foxgloves, but that’s just a small part of it. Hearing visitors’ comments is useful and satisfying. Coming across wildlife whilst working is a bonus – hedgehogs, snakes, a variety of birds and insects. I would encourage others to volunteer here, especially if they want to try something new, meet different people, be part of a team and contribute to Middleton Hall’s survival and success. And we need their skills, knowledge and manpower!” – Paula, Gardens and Grounds Volunteer

“I like to get involved in events such as Plant Hunters’ Fair, Middleton Motors Monthly and seasonal events in the winter. The variety of tasks I undertake include: selling plants, fruit and jams grown and/or made on site; selling drinks and snacks to visitors and welcoming visitors into the Hall on Front of House. I work full-time but I started volunteering at Middleton Hall on some weekends because it’s fun and I feel like I am making a difference to the charity. It is very satisfying knowing that Middleton-produced plants and produce are making a small amount of money that gets invested back into the Trust. I would most certainly recommend volunteering to others as it is fulfilling, enjoyable and you meet lots of interesting people.” Mary, Events Volunteer
