Our events and activities volunteers can get involved in a broad range of roles and can work around you and your existing commitments.
You might be…
- proposing an idea for a new event
- delivering talks or workshops to groups (families, children, enthusiasts) about a topic that you are passionate about
- championing events and helping the Trust to advertise them
- welcoming event attendees and answering questions they might have
- leading drop-in events about nature and heritage
- hosting craft sessions, pond dipping activities, building dens and so on…
- supporting our larger scale events in some way (exhibitions, bio-blitz, children’s take-over days)
- designing promotional materials, posters or social media posts for upcoming events
The beauty of volunteering with our events and activities is the role’s flexibility. We run events throughout the day and into the evening on both weekdays and weekends… This lends itself to fit around you!
There are no hard and fast rules relating to the skills that our volunteers need. However, it would be advantageous if you felt comfortable talking to people that you may have just met and be open to some public speaking.
We want to capitalise on our volunteers' skills and will find a place to suit your strengths if you would like to volunteer with our events and activities.
How might volunteers benefit from getting involved?
- learning new skills whilst organising and running family-friendly events
- developing your knowledge about the park, its history and ecology
- becoming involved in a thriving volunteer community
- meeting new people that you otherwise may not meet
- having regular opportunities to take up training
- spending time outdoors and enjoying yourself!
Nestled away in the delightful village of Clare, Clare Castle Country Park contains the remains of the 13th Century stone castle keep set upon its 60ft high motte overlooking the town. The Castle's inner inner and outer baileys are ideal areas for recreation and picnics with the inner bailey also containing the former railway station which is now a Listed building.
Various walks and trails weave through the park which sits along the banks of the River Stour. Our rich flora and fauna is further complimented by a diverse population of wildlife.
After recently securing Heritage Lottery Funding, the park is undergoing renovation works and improving its facilities for the local community and visitors to Clare.
