We are looking for volunteers who could contribute to the children starting a fruit and vegetable garden to allow the children to learn how to plant, watch grow then produce soup, jams, etc for the community and possibly start a little garden shop enterprise.
We have ongoing projects involving painting, maintenance, building sheds, planting, and weeding developing areas within the school grounds.
We have a pond and the children enjoy getting involved with pond dipping to see what wildlife it attracts so additional volunteers would allow us to plan more days doing these things.
We are a small village school with a great group of children some of whom would benefit greatly from working and learning from adults out with the classroom.
As a Remap Volunteer you will get to meet the disabled people we help, often with an occupational therapist who can provide clinical input. Your job is to solve whatever practical challenge they throw at you, designing and then making a special piece of equipment that will help them become more independent. We also ask that you risk assess, provide basic documentation, and take photographs of your project.
You will need somewhere to work independently on your projects, some of our volunteers have their own workshop, others use community facilities or have a workbench and tools in the garage. However you like to work, we would be pleased to hear from you.
Cockenzie House & Gardens puts on an amazing Christmas Lights display. This will be our third year and it is going to be bigger and better than ever. Big switch on is Friday 1st December
We also have a Christmas market also starting that day. We have been inundated with crafters wanting stalls so we would like to extend the market until 15th December.
We need to get all the market space and the gardens ready for our Christmas activities – it’s not about gardening. It’s about setting things up and helping us to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Would you like to volunteer with us during the school holidays? We require young people to work on the farm, welcome visitors to the site and support delivery of our October holiday event programme. This work will be varied and include looking after the animals, litter picking, giving directions to visitors, signing in visitors to events, helping with woodwork preparation for events, maintaining our nature reserve and general preparation for events. We require help all 16 days from the 30th September. We appreciate that young people will have family commitments and wish to spend time with friends so there will be no particular work pattern required.
There will be an element of training required so we would hope that any new young person to Murton can attend for at least 4 days over the 2 week period. Placement will be 10.00am to 4.00pm, although for those that are reliant on public transport, we may be able to make allowances. Young people will receive a t-shirt, a free lunch and snack for each day they are with us.
We are keen to support as many individuals as possible that will benefit the most from being with us, particularly those from Forfar and Kirriemuir where transport is likely to be easier.
If you would like to join us during the holidays, we require the attached online form https://forms.office.com/e/ij9Y73c5Zu be completed as soon as possible, preferably by Friday 22nd September. Late applications may still be considered if spaces are available. If you require support with the online form, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We will then contact all young people between the 25th and 27th September to confirm final details of the programme.
