We rely on volunteers to help us open the estate to visitors and to conserve it for everyone to enjoy.

Volunteer at Wimpole

Volunteers help us with welcoming visitors, gardening and wildlife conservation, they also help with guided tours around the garden, hall, park; help with school groups at the farm and some even muck out the pigs.

At Wimpole we have many varied volunteering opportunities for people of all ages. Volunteering allows you to:

• Learn new skills

• Meet new people and make friends

• Enjoy social events with the Wimpole Volunteer Club which has talks and trips throughout the year

• Enhance your CV

Current opportunities 

Tree Planting with the Countryside Team

We are planting 29,000 trees as part of our exciting Green Recovery Challenge Fund project and we need help, especially for the planting in our new woodland regeneration and woodland pasture areas. We are looking for volunteers who can be available one day a week, Monday to Friday, from mid-November until mid-February. Previous experience is useful but not essential as basic training will be provided. Enthusiasm and an appetite for hard work are more important and volunteers must by physically fit and prepared to work outdoors in all weathers. In return, you'll get to work with our friendly ranger team and countryside volunteers, contribute to a lasting legacy for generations to come and have lots of fun.
If you're interested in the role, please send us an email. We'll then arrange for you to meet the ranger team for an informal chat about the role. 

To view other current volunteer opportunities at Wimpole please visit the volunteering opportunities web page. Please note, we cannot accept volunteer applications from under 16's.
