Volunteering at Cherrryburn 

We like to keep Bewick's story alive by telling his story, welcoming visitors, organising events, keeping the place looking good (there's plenty of hedges to trim, lawns to cut and shelves to tidy) and helping to monitor the cafe and shop. If this sounds like something you'd like to help us to do, then please get in touch.
