In preparation for Glendurgan Gardens reopening to the public next month, the National Trust property team are looking for new volunteers.

There will be an open day on Monday, January 21 at the garden, where there will be the chance to meet staff and volunteers and find out more about the exciting roles on offer.

Tamsin Hennah, senior visitor experience officer, said: "We have a fantastic group of volunteers at Glendurgan helping in lots of different ways.

"There are a variety of ways to get involved in 2019 and the Glendurgan team are really looking forward to the Open Day as an opportunity to grow the volunteering team even more."

There are opportunities to help in visitor-facing roles with Easter egg hunts, as well as other outdoor family activities and more practical positions supporting the garden team.

There is also the chance to volunteer in Durgan village at the foot of the garden, with the team of Fish Cellar volunteers who provide a warm welcome in this charming hamlet and share the local history.

You can come and meet the team at a morning or afternoon session. Each session includes a guided walk round the garden and places will need to be booked in advance.

The morning session will run from 10am-12:30pm and the afternoon session from 2-4.30pm.

If you’d like to attend the open day, you can book a place call 01326 252020 or email

Glendurgan, with views of the Helford River, re-opens to the public on Saturday, February 16 and will then be open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 10.30am to 5.30pm.
