Volunteer

Help with Events

The Society is always in need of more help with its regular fund-raising events and ongoing activities.   

These include:

  • Two Plant Sales every year and help is needed both “before and on the day” and with organisation.  Equally important is the need for volunteers to grow and donate plants for sale.  Plant sales are great social occasions not least because they include space to sit and enjoy teas and coffees and wonderful home-made cakes and volunteers both bake and serve the delicious fare.

  • Music in the Park happens every year, at the Bandstand in the John Innes Park, at a weekend as close to mid-Summer as possible, with a guest quartet, quintet or even a full brass band. Help with venue organisation, finding performers, ticket sales and stewarding would be welcome.

  • Quiz Night which includes a light supper such as a Ploughmans and a pay-bar requires organisation, a question-master of course, caterers, kitchen and bar helpers all of which happens on a volunteer basis.

 

  • Exhibitions at the Coach House – historical information with photographic exhibits :  History buffs to act Stewards required.

 

  • Open Gardens Day – First and foremost, volunteers please to open their gardens !  Pre-event organisation is key as well as “on the day”, and then there  is manning the ticket office and tea and home-made cake stall at the Coach House, with tables to sit at and relax.
