At the hospice we strive to provide a calm and relaxed environment - a welcoming haven for patients, visitors and wildlife.

Our gardening volunteers willingly pick up and carry out seasonal jobs all year round. Your role would be to decide what needs doing and create a plan for managing the gardens and grounds - so that others can share out jobs like grass cutting, weeding, planting, improving the soil and cutting back or removing growth.

We think a few hours a week of your time will be needed. In between, others can follow and carry out tasks according to your plans and advice.
