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 all throughout the year. Just make an appointment to come in and see Neil, our head gardener.

Volunteer Minibus Drivers

Some of our activities involve taking groups out to interesting places in our 16 passenger lightweight minibus, ‘Hoskins’. Typical destinations include Bassenthwaite Lake, Buttermere, Borrowdale, St Bees, Newlands Valley. Trips might be drop-off and pick-up, half or full days out. We do not tend to travel outside Cumbria.

Having volunteer drivers often relieves a Tutor or a another staff member of having to drive and helps us enormously. Requirements: Clean license held for 5 years, doctor’s clearance (if required), proven safe driver.
Driver Awareness Training may be offered.
