Could you be a Glendurgan Garden welcome volunteer?
4:00pm Sunday 15th December 2013 in News
The team at Glendurgan Garden at Mawnan Smith, is looking for volunteers to give welcome talks to visitors.
Staff would like to offer free, ten-minute, introductory talks at intervals throughout each open day so that visitors understand what the garden contains and how it came to be created by the Fox family and their gardeners.
Volunteers will receive training to equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to engage visitors.
Anyone interested in becoming a Glendurgan welcome volunteer should contact visitor experience manager, Tamsin Hennah on 01326 252021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The training will take place in January and volunteers will need to have an enthusiastic and friendly manner.
Tamsin said: “Glendurgan is one of many Cornish gardens in this area and we want our visitors to understand what makes this place unique. We know how much people like to hear about Glendurgan so these introductory talks will be welcomed, with visitors able to find out more from our leaflets and boards around the garden.
“I’m really looking forward to welcoming new volunteers to the team and seeing the difference they’ll make to our visitors’ experience of this special valley garden.”
