Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts

The team at Wimpole Hall are gearing up for another busy year, and there are lots of ways for you to be involved in making sure this local landmark offers a welcoming day out for all the family.

The Wimpole Estate with its gardens, impressive mansion and Home Farm is a National Trust property which relies on a valued army of volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly and visitors receive a warm welcome.

Visitor welcome volunteers greet visitors, give them information, deal with ticket sales and make sure they enjoy their day.

Visitor experience volunteers champion one of the National Trust’s key messages campaign by helping people make the most of the great outdoors through Wimpole’s range of education activities.

As a garden guide you could be trained to provide an exceptional visitor experience through the interpretation of the garden, or why not become a plant sales volunteer and assist in the care of the plant stock and the display of new plants for sale.

Tractor ride conductors are an essential part of operating Wimpole’s tractor shuttle service between the stable block and Home Farm and Farm Volunteers (weekends only) and farm guides are part of the team, too.

And if you have skills in website management and use of social media tools you could be a social and digital media volunteer. In this role you will be able to raise the profile of the property, advertise events, and develop stronger links with the local community.
