The activities run each Tuesday and Thursday, from 10.30am to 2.30pm. Due to COVID restrictions, they cannot provide travel/pick-ups at the moment.
Absolutely no prior knowledge, work experience or skills are necessary.
All groups are run by an experienced leader who will give you training in the activities they do, the reasons why they do them and the tools used. All equipment, tools and gloves are supplied. Please wear sturdy footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Please bring along a packed lunch and any water or juice you would like.
A great opportunity to join a group of parents/leaders who aim to make the programme as wide and varied as possible for youth membership. As well as being rewarding and fun, it is a very social and friendly team with training and experience that can support skills for life.
Join a group of busy leaders who volunteer in a job-share capacity to ensure we provide a full Scout programme for our membership. You will be one of a team of adult and young adult leaders who design and deliver a programme built on the Scout badge scheme but focused on the outdoors.
Using our excellent facility in Torwood as a base, and with multiple camps and activities going on, we welcome any leaders/helpers who can give their time to our programme. From occasional helper to someone who enjoys admin to dedicated leader, or even just someone wishing to support events, we have space for all.
Full training and background checks will be required to ensure the best fit for the role, and opportunities exist across all age groups.
Share knowledge and love of gardening by helping to plant, remove weeds, water, and suggest improvements within the garden. Or if you are a novice to gardening we could help to develop your gardening knowledge.
Garden Helpers would be welcome as little or often as they wish with no notice or commitment required.
Ideally, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to say you have been and what you have done, or if you saw anything out of the ordinary while you were there.
Gardening tools are available if requested.
The garden is situated in the old neglected church orchard and was created in 2016 by a small group of volunteers under the auspices of the Parish Church. The team have tried to create a peaceful and enjoyable place for the community to enjoy, with items of interest for all ages.
The volunteer would always be working with the rest of the team with ongoing support at all times. Jobs would include basic DIY, garden maintenance, composting, planting, weeding, assisting with fundraising and planning new projects. No official training needed but there will be ongoing opportunities to learn more about gardening generally. The Community Garden is normally open for volunteers on Monday and Wednesday mornings but other times may be available.
Good basic DIY skills would be an advantage and as ability to work as a team and regularly welcome visitors good communication skills are important.
