Volunteer with us at The Argory

Working in the walled garden at The Argory

The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three remarkable volunteers, and thanks to them our vision to care for special places for ever for everyone is very much alive today.

Roles and opportunities

Volunteers at The Argory are involved in all aspects of the place, from being outdoors looking after the estate and working on our gardens to helping indoors, taking part in conservation projects and administration. Lots of our volunteers are involved in visitor facing roles as meeter-greeters, tour guides, and in the second-hand bookshop. Our volunteers are also heavily involved in our programme of events throughout the year - previous roles have included everything from face painting, flower arranging to making chocolates for our fabulous afternoon teas.

Volunteering at The Argory gives you the chance to meet people from all walks of life, not just the visitors who come to see us, but also your fellow volunteers - it’s the perfect way to meet like-minded people and make new friends.
