Why get involved?

A wide variety of roles are available at Berrington

Nearly all of our volunteer roles involve welcoming people to Berrington and helping them have great day out. We also have many other different and varied roles to choose from. You will be part of a team; you can share your skills and gain new ones, make new friends and have some fun.

Our volunteers say

  • ‘We moved house to Leominster with a smaller garden than we had before. So helping to tend the vegetable patch and gardens has been great. I grow a much wider variety of plants than I did before and I meet new people every day.’ Percy Manton
  • ‘When the children finally flew the nest, days became too quiet. Now I volunteer for Berrington Hall. I’ve joined the team in the house. I help one day a week as we get very busy in the summer months.’ Juliet Hall
