Advertise your Volunteer vacancies

Finding volunteers is difficult for a number of reasons. On the basis that you don‘t normally apply for a volunteer vacancy if you don‘t know what it involves, this page will be for advertising volunteering opportunities on the website. 

We already have two volunteer positions to advertise:

Lectures sub-committee. We should like a volunteer to join this friendly and efficient committee to help us plan and run the Centre‘s annual season of talks. At present, the committee meets four times a year in Cheltenham, (near Bethesda where there is private parking)  on dates and at times to suit the members.  For more information contact Jan Turner, Sub-committee chairman, Tel 01242 674140


Study day organiser(s)  Two successful study days have taken place. Organiser(s) needed to arrange a study day for 2018. Initial enquiries have taken place for one at Woodchester in the Stroud area, although it could be elsewhere. Members travel in their own transport.  Organisation includes collecting fees and arranging the format for the day.

For further details contact Bill Cronin, email


Vacancy Notices for Helpers on the Centre Outings and Holidays

In order to continue to provide an annual series of Outings for Centre Members, help with the Coach Outings is urgently needed. We need Members to volunteer to organise Outings themselves, or who would be willing to lead some Outings, particularly if I, as the Outing Organiser was not able to be present. We may have some Members who have had previous experience in organising or leading Outings who would be willing to help, or alternatively Members who have never attempted such a venture but would  like do so appropriate help, training and guidance would be available. Additionally, Janet and Adris would be grateful for any Members offering to take a turn in handling Members‘ Applications for Outings, and recording and sending the relevant cheques to the Treasurer. Members interested in helping the Outings Organisers in these ways can volunteer or obtain more information from David Cooke on 01453 765391 or


Volunteers invited to help at Easter Egg Hunt at Woodchester.

As you maybe aware, like many properties, Woodchester Park is going to be part of the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts this year. I require some help in handing out the trails at the start, possibly some car park marshalling and handing out Easter eggs at the end when they have completed the hunt. The details are below;

Dates: Friday 30 March to Monday 2 April 2018

Time: 10am to 3pm. Role: Helping with the hunt at the start or finish area. Start - handing out trails and explaining it to children. Finish collecting the correct answers from the children and handing out Easter bunnies.

It is our busiest time of the year for visitors and a great way to show them how amazing the places are in our portfolio.

I understand this may not be for everyone and it's also a busy time with families. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions or if you're able to help out on one or more of the days, please let me know at

Thanks so much

Kind regards
