Join our volunteer team!

Service with a smile in Wordsworth House café

Service with a smile: Café volunteer Helen

We’re looking for new people to join the lovely volunteer team who help run Wordsworth House and Garden.

There’s no need to have worked in a historic house or garden before. You just need a warm, friendly manner and a desire to learn something new – and to have a few hours a week to spare.

We have vacancies for room guides to chat to visitors in our fabulous working 18th-century kitchen and elsewhere in the house, and for people to lead our new guided tours.

We also need extra help serving our delicious homemade cakes, scones and light lunches in the café – and there’s even a much-coveted vacancy for a garden volunteer to work outside with me in William’s childhood playground!

So whether you want to improve your CV or to do something a bit different now you’re retired, why not pop in and find out more?

We’re holding an informal open morning at the house on Tuesday, 28 January, from 10am-1pm. I look forward to meeting you then!

Or if you can’t make it, email wordsworthhouse@nationaltrust.org.uk or call 01900 824805 and arrange to see us another time.
