The National Trust team at Glendurgan Garden are on the lookout for new volunteers.

The team is interested in individuals willing to help care for the much loved historic and exotic wooded valley garden near Falmouth.

To provide additional information, the charity is hosting a volunteer open day on February 26.

Those interested can meet the team and learn more about volunteering at Glendurgan Garden.

To participate, attendees must book in advance through the garden's website or by phoning 0344 249 1895.

Several meaningful roles are available, including working in the picturesque hamlet of Durgan located at the garden’s lower end.

More than 30 volunteers currently run the old Fish Cellar, where they welcome visitors and share the history of Glendurgan and the North Helford area.

Another opportunity includes joining Glendurgan’s newly formed nature engagement team.

The role involves leading visitor activities that celebrate the natural world and encourage creativity.

The group meets in the garden's secluded apple orchard and apple shed.

Tony Finnigan, site manager for the National Trust at Glendurgan, encourages participation: "Volunteering is a rewarding experience and great way to support the National Trust, while also spending time in amazing places and making new friends."

"The garden at Glendurgan is a beautiful place to spend time and the volunteers really bring the place to life for visitors.

"It is always an exciting time for us when we welcome new volunteers and meet the people that will help us continue to share the stories of Glendurgan."

There are no minimum time requirements for National Trust volunteers, but regular shifts, usually three hours long, are advantageous.

All recruits will undergo induction to ensure full confidence in carrying out their role.

The Volunteer Open Day will include two sessions; one from 10am - 12pm and another from 2pm - 4pm.
