Volunteering Opportunities

We are always looking for volunteers. Currently we have excellent volunteers who run our shop, the library, the 200 Club, help with gardening and many other practical tasks that make an important contribution to maintaining the Manor.

Garden Volunteers

Guests to Halsway are encouraged to help with the flower beds if they wish to and, if you live locally, you might like to volunteer on a more regular basis too. Currently all the flower beds are maintained by volunteers so there is a ‘Garden Log Book’ available at reception which sets out safety aspects and contains a job list for visitors.

We also hold regular gardening days – come and join us! Bring your gardening gloves and a packed-lunch, hot drinks will be provided. Contact the office to be put in touch with the Garden Volunteer Coordinator.
