Volunteer with us and become part of the Lavenham Guildhall family. We would love you to come and join our team and help look after our special place.

Why volunteer?

Our volunteers have so many reasons why they're with us. We asked them what they felt some of the benefits were:
  • Trying something different or indulging your interests
  • Helping to look after this special place and bring it to life
  • Join a great family and make new friends
  • Feeling good about doing something worthwhile
  • Learning new skills and enhancing your CV
  • Having fun and enjoying social events
  • Very flexible with days and hours for volunteering
  • Knowing that you're helping our visitors have a great day out

Volunteering puts you at the heart of the National Trust. You’ll join a family of thousands looking after our special places.

A social experience

Our 30 volunteers are quite simply the heart of Lavenham Guildhall. Without them we couldn't keep it going. To say thanks, our volunteers enjoy regular talks, coffee mornings, and walks and talks. Highlights are always our seasonal social events where we all come together as a family.
