THE DOROTHY CLIVE GARDEN MAKES AN APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS IN THE OFFICE AND GARDEN (5th July 2013)

THE DOROTHY CLIVE GARDEN  MAKES AN APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEERS IN THE OFFICE AND GARDEN

The Dorothy Clive Garden - an independent charitable garden trust - is making an urgent appeal for volunteers to help in the office and garden.

The busy office which is run by Administrator, Julia Roberts, is situated in the heart of the garden adjacent to the tearoom and is central to all activity of the charitable garden trust.  Office volunteers are urgently needed weekday afternoons from  13.00 to 17.00 approximately, to help with the day-to-day tasks such as answering the telephone, filing and assisting with administration.

The garden volunteer program run by deputy Curator, Margaret Barry, includes a range of opportunities for the amateur or experienced gardener such as garden maintenance, propagation or pruning. Volunteers are required Monday through to Friday, for a half day or full day and the time commitment can be flexible.

If you would like to volunteer in the Office and/ or Garden, please contact Julia Roberts on 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.
