As part of the gardens team you will help to maintain the gardens alongside other volunteers - deadheading, weeding, pruning and more. No experience is necessary - just an open mind and a willingness to learn! Volunteer incentives include discounts and complimentary Hestercombe membership.
As a small charity, Hestercombe relies on volunteers to deliver a number of extremely valuable services, both directly to visitors and behind the scenes.
There are a variety of ways you can get involved. Whether through gardening, invigilating in the Hestercombe Gallery or supporting with office administration Â¬all roles on which the running of Hestercombe is dependent.
By volunteering at Hestercombe youll be part of the Hestercombe team made up of volunteers from the local community, as well the Hestercombe staff.
The roles undertaken by volunteers here at Hestercombe are considered some of the most important across the organisation and allow us to offer the highest quality visitor experience. Without the support of volunteers we would not be able to deliver the wide range of events, high quality exhibitions and continued estate management that we currently provide.
Whether you are able to offer a few hours a month, or a day or two a week, it is your time and energy that makes Hestercombe the exciting, innovative and engaging place it is.
As a thank you for your help and hard work, Hestercombe offers volunteers free annual membership, a discount card for the Gardens Shop, training and an annual volunteer party a great opportunity to socialise and get to know our team even better. Of course our volunteers also receive free tea and coffee while working at Hestercombe!"
