THE DOROTHY CLIVE GARDEN MAKES AN APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS IN THE NEW GIFT SHOP (6th February 2012)

THE DOROTHY CLIVE GARDEN  MAKES AN APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS IN THE NEW GIFT SHOP

The Dorothy Clive Garden - a charitable garden trust - is making an urgent appeal for volunteers to help in the new gift shop.

The gift shop, run by Manager Hazel Turner, is situated in the heart of the garden adjacent to the tearoom. The gift shop is open daily to visitors between 12.00am and 4.00pm and the revenue generated helps support the general upkeep of the garden as well as any new projects implemented by the Curator and BBC gardening show panellist, Marcus Chilton-Jones.

Hazel Turner said, ‘The new gift shop is stocked with a range of greetings cards, gardening books, arts and crafts, bespoke jewellery and items suitable for presents. For the gift shop to be profitable, we desperately need to recruit volunteers to help out. We have a fantastic family atmosphere here and it is a fantastic place to work.’

If you would like to volunteer in the garden gift shop, please contact Hazel Turner on 07972 594 101 or 01630 647237 or email info@dorothyclivegarden.co.uk.

The garden, originally a disused gravel quarry, was transformed by Colonel Clive into a woodland garden for his wife Dorothy, who was suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The charity was then set up in 1958 by Colonel Harry Clive as a place of rest and recreation and continued horticultural education for the general public and as a place of memorial to Dorothy.
