Friendly people willing to put in a bit of hard work for a few hours,  a morning or afternoon on a regular basis


  • Full training given
  • Sadly due to the nature of our building this opportunity is not suited to those using large mobility aids or wheel chairs as the 'behind the scenes' areas are rather small and there is no ramp access to toilet facilities.
