Search for new Volunteers at The Bishop’s Palace

The search is on for twelve people who have some time to spare and would like to volunteer in one of the most beautiful sites in the West Country.

Siobhan Goodwin, Volunteer Co-ordinator at The Bishop’s Palace, is keen to point out the vital contribution that the Volunteer team make. ‘They are so dedicated and hardworking. With our busiest time of year approaching we would like to welcome a dozen more Volunteers into our friendly team. There is always plenty to do here but we would particularly like to hear from people who have some time to spare at weekends. It is a great way to gain skills and experience if you are just starting out into the world of work, trying to build your CV, or simply feel that you’re at a stage in your life when you have time to give something back.’ The team gets together throughout the year for social events and training.

Mavis, who has been volunteering at the palace every week for the last 7 years, loves meeting people from all over the world. ‘I enjoy sharing my love of the Palace and hearing the wonderful comments from visitors particularly about our Gardens.’

There will be two drop-in sessions in the Stableyard room at the Palace so that anyone interested in finding out more can call in for a chat. Just pop in anytime on Sun 25th Feb 2-4pm or Mon 26th Feb 10-12noon.  Alternatively you can contact Siobhan directly: siobhan.goodwin@bishopspalace.org.uk  or tel 01749 988111 ext 202.
