Become a Volunteer - be part of our team

As the Friends of Upton Country Park we are always looking for more Volunteers to enable us to keep the Park a beautiful place to visit.

What is a Friend?

Someone who is there when needed who will listen and is willing to give advice when requested.

Someone who doesn't ask "what’s in it for me" but will say, "I can't do much, but I can do a little". That is the sort of person we need.

We are in great need of people who can do a little. A little sometimes goes a long way, if enough of us do it together.

Can you help?

Are you shy, and don't want to push yourself? Many of our best volunteers started in this way.

Do you prefer the wide-open spaces? Would you consider patrolling the grounds, giving friendly advice to our visitors? Can you identify trees, birds and plants, or say where the nearest toilet is or the quickest way to a phone, or first aid point?

Are you the sort of person who prefers to act in an official capacity, e.g. know how to carry out the functions of a Fundraiser, or are you skilled in Social functions?

Would you like to carry out research, interview former workers and staff from the days of the Llewellins?

Are you skilled at Audio History (or Sound Archives) and can work from home?

Have you ways in which to increase our Membership, do Surveys, and gauge Public Opinion?

Are you a confident speaker who could take our slide shows out to other groups and organisations?

Yes, I know we already have people doing these sorts of jobs, but no one stays forever, and “understudies” are always needed.

Why not ensure that you join a SUCCESSFUL TEAM, and make it better?

Brian J Galpin, President, The Friends of Upton Country Park.

All the Friends of Upton Country Park are volunteers, many of whom give up some of their valuable time to help in keeping Upton Country Park and Upton House a beautiful place to visit.
