Broads Authority is looking for volunteers for Whitlingham Country Park

The Broads Authority has an opening for volunteers at Whitlingham Country Park. Individuals interested in volunteering at Whitlingham would be joining a group of enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals who take care of the park in all weathers and help the visitors who enjoy its facilities.

Whitlingham volunteers

Volunteers undertake a range of tasks such as picking up litter, keeping the vegetation along paths controlled, undertaking simple repairs, making hurdles, keeping signs clean, maintaining an information board and talking to visitors.

Volunteer Coordinator at the Broads Authority, Beth Williams, said of the opening,

“Whitlingham Country Park is the gateway into the Broads National Park from the city of Norwich. It’s a really important site for engaging with visitors and it hosts many events throughout the year. We’re really keen to find volunteers who love Whitlingham as much as we do and are willing to get stuck in maintaining it as a beautiful environment for everybody to enjoy.”

Prospective volunteers will be asked to come to Whitlingham for a morning or afternoon for an informal chat. They will have the opportunity to walk around the site and to help with a practical task.  If they enjoy their experience and are able to bring a positive contribution to Whitlingham they will be given training, before they begin their new role.

The closing date to be considered for this role has been extended to midday Friday 7 September 2018.
