The Friends of the Winter Gardens would, of course, be thrilled to hear from you.
From helping out at our Friday evening paranormal group to lending a hand to those with learning difficulties, you can bring your unique skills to the venue and maybe find a new hobby or meet a new friend along the way.
More the Merrier
We operate on a ‘more the merrier’ basis; anyone and everyone is welcome to help. You just need the willingness to get stuck in at a time to suit you.
You could help by serving customers behind our cafe, or serving drinks at the bar; ours is a community-run venue and we rely on kind-hearted volunteers to keep the building ticking along.
On top of that, we’re always open to fundraising ideas too. We’d love to have you onboard in whatever capacity that may be.
