Volunteer at Claremont Landscape Garden
If you're looking for something new to do, why not try volunteering at Claremont? Volunteering is a great way to hone your skills, stay social and contribute to the preservation of our beautiful landscape. Here are just some of the many varied roles you could be doing...
Green fingers? Thumbs up
Our small team of just three full-time gardeners have a huge job to do, looking after 49 acres of historic, Grade I-listed landscape. Helping as a volunteer gardener is a great way to get out into the fresh air and make a tangible difference. You don't need years of experience - just enthusiasm and a fair level of fitness.
If you feel more comfortable behind a keyboard than in front of a wood chipper, you could be helping our friendly office team keep things running smoothly behind the scenes. And it doesn't all have to be paperwork - we often need help with creative stuff like making up examples of children's crafts, or making cups of tea for 80 violinists!
" As a volunteer at Claremont I have enjoyed a variety of rewarding experiences, helping provide children with exciting, stimulating and educational activities whilst creating a welcoming and happy atmosphere for the whole family."
We run a full programme of events for the family all year round. Fancy being Father Christmas, demonstrating the endless things you can make with a stick, or painting teacups with tots? There are tons of opportunities for you to get involved and have some fun.
If history's your thing, spread your enthusiasm to others by joining us as a garden guide. Help us keep the fascinating and tragic stories of royal Claremont alive, and inspire others to learn more.
Do you love meeting and chatting to people? Then we need you! Help us engage visitors with our cause by talking about our work, selling raffle tickets and encouraging donations.
" Volunteering is fulfilling; I get to see special places, sometimes behind the scenes and learn about what is not in the guidebooks."
If you're a bit of a shutterbug, you could help us show the world how beautiful Claremont really is. Shoot breathtaking landscapes, document our conservation work, or even capture a rare kingfisher or roe deer.
