Volunteer

Are you keen to get involved in the project in a hands on way and help to make it happen? Our Working Party meets once a month to hear about project progress and news and look at the priority tasks for the coming month, with tasks shared out between the project staff and volunteers. We look at all areas of the project including arts and heritage development, facilities management and fundraising so tasks can be anything from helping to plan and man a heritage event, helping out at a fundraising event such as the Pirate Festival, take up some shifts in the TIC,  install a picture rail, assemble furniture or paint the kitchen! There are always jobs to be done and with a tiny staff team we really appreciate any time that people have spare to help out. At the moment we are specifically looking for:

Volunteers to work in the Tourist Information centre, to give up a few hours a month, answering questions, giving out leaflets, booking tickets and promoting the project, town and tourist attractions.
Volunteers to join our Working Group, an hour or so every month to attend a meeting, find out about overall project progress and news and focus on the priority tasks that month across all areas of the project – arts, heritage, fundraising, facilities management and activities.
Volunteers to join our Board, probably the most active volunteer roles we have on offer, we meet every other month and discuss the development and strategic decisions.

What we can offer you in return
Two volunteer thank you events per year, where we provide a party to celebrate you and the support you have given
Basic volunteer training
A chance to meet new friends and to get involved with award winning events
Somewhere to share and pass on your stories and knowledge of Wells and the surrounding area
