Charity Garden Appeals for Volunteers

Award winning 12 acre hillside garden, tourist attraction and charitable trust The Dorothy Clive Garden is making an urgent appeal for volunteers to help in garden and gift room.

Volunteers are required Monday through to Friday from 10am to 5pm and their commitment can be flexible. The garden volunteer programme includes a range of opportunities for the amateur or experienced gardener such as garden maintenance, propagation or pruning. The gift room volunteers are needed for helping stocking shelves, pricing items and manning the gift room itself.

Curator, Kathryn Robey, said, ‘Volunteers play an integral part in the smooth running of The Dorothy Clive Garden. We have a range of opportunities to suit all needs and we also offer an annual membership pass as a benefit for our volunteers to enjoy.’

Situated in the heart of the garden adjacent to the tearoom, the gift shop, run by Hazel Turner, is s and open daily in the high season between 10.00am and 5.00pm and the revenue generated helps support the general upkeep of the garden as well as any new projects implemented by the Curator Kathryn Robey.


If you would like to volunteer in the garden or gift room, please contact Dawn at the Dorothy Clive Garden on 01630 647237 or email:
