2018 January

We at Chester National Trust Volunteers work across Cheshire, the Marches (Chirk and Erddig) and the Wirral for two days per fortnight.

The Tuesday group works on alternate Tuesdays, offering an opportunity to get out and about across the region, taking on tasks as varied as clearing overgrown pathways to building fences and hedgelaying, including recently laying a safe surface in a children’s play area at Speke Hall and restoring an area of heathland habitat at Bickerton Hill. No previous experience is necessary, as there is always a job for everyone and you pick up new skills as you go along.

The Thursday group works on alternate weeks to the Tuesday group and  takes on longer term projects, particularly dry stone walling in the summer and hedge-laying in the winter months. Tools are provided, as is a friendly welcome from both groups.

Three times per year, CNTV organises a working week at one of the National Trust’s basecamps, where a three-day project is undertaken.

The membership includes people of all ages and levels of experience, and the variety of tasks offers something for everyone. After completing fifty hours of volunteering, there is the added bonus of receiving a National Trust volunteers card which entitles you to free entry at all National Trust properties, and discounts in some of their shops and cafes! If you are looking for an opportunity to spend time outside, give something back to the countryside and have fun – whatever your age or abilities – you can get in touch by contacting Brian Payne at briansue.payne@btinternet.com.

Company Volunteer Groups
Our group of volunteers visit various National Trust properties during the year and undertake work as directed by the N T Warden. We are not employees of the trust. We welcome individuals to join us, but when we are contacted by companies or other organisations who wish to place employee groups with us, we direct them to the National Trust – see below.
NT have a scheme called Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV), which caters for the type of voluntary work you require.
