Volunteer Recruitment - can you help?

As the scope of Orchard Barn expands so too does our need for specialised help to develop different areas of our work.


We are looking for someone who is willing to work with regular volunteers at Orchard Barn one (or possibly two) days a week - preferably 10-4 Thursdays. Possibly provide instruction to new volunteers.

We are hoping to find someone who can take the lead making items using locally sourced greenwood that we can sell at fairs and fetes.

Orchard Barn has a range of traditional hand tools that are available to use. Ideally the person applying for this Volunteer Role would be familiar with using a froe, draw knife, side axe and hand saw. Going forward we would like to be repairing and renovation more of these old tools. Sharpening skills would be a bonus, but can be taught.


We are also looking for a volunteer who can take a lead with Events Management. With an exciting year ahead of us, this is likely to include our Heritage Open Day, OBee's 12th birthday, Members Picnic and/or Annual Outing.

For an informal chat about either of these Volunteer Posts, please phone Sarah on 01473-658193/07766-054042

For an application form, please email carole.orchardbarn@gmail.com
