Volunteer Gardeners

Always wanted to help our two paid gardeners and their small team of volunteers care for our 6 acres of grounds. Whether it be for just an hour occasionally or more frequently, there is always something to do throughout the year. Just make an appointment to come in and see Neil, our head gardener.

All volunteers are able to be fed & watered, and are treated as valuable members of the Higham Team as well!

Volunteer Minibus Drivers

Some of our activities involve taking groups out in our 16 passenger minibus,  ‘Findlay’. Typical destinations include Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Borrowdale, St Bees and Newlands Valley to name a few! We do not tend to travel outside Cumbria. Trips vary from drop-off and pick-up to half or full days out.

Having volunteer drivers helps us enormously as it often relieves a Tutor or a member of staff from having to drive.

Requirements:

  • Clean license held for 5 years
  • doctor’s clearance (if required)
  • under 75 yrs old
  • proven safe driver
  • Driver Awareness Training may be offered.

All volunteers are able to be fed & watered, and are treated as valuable members of the Higham Team as well!
