About the role
The Friends of the Winston Churchill Memorial Garden and the Honeybourne Line meet on the second and fourth Thursday morning of each month from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm.
We work with the council's Green Space Development Team to look after the Winston Churchill Memorial Garden and the Honeybourne Line. Typical jobs for our volunteer working parties include planting, clearing, weeding and litter picking. Gardening knowledge is welcome but not necessary. All tools provided. Volunteers need to wear suitable clothing for working outdoors.
We have a break halfway through the morning to share coffee and cakes and have a chat. Volunteers are asked to contribute £1 towards coffee and refreshments, and have the option of taking part in a baking rota.
Other jobs done by volunteers include: fundraising for improvements, maintaining the noticeboard and social media, and organising occasional events.
