Could you lend a helping hand?

We are looking for local volunteers to help serve teas and sell tickets at some of our special school events.

Sumptuous cakes at Walhampton events

At Walhampton our school calendar is sprinkled with events of all kinds: sports events, musical and theatrical performances, heritage and botannical tours, school fetes and festivals, which often fall outside of school hours, in the evenings and at weekends.

Our hard working staff team are wonderful in dedicating extra time to these special school events which help make Walhampton all that it is, but there are occasions when we could really do with an extra pair of hands... It may be sitting on the door selling tickets, serving tea and cakes or stuffing envelopes. One event we have already in the calendar is our National Garden Scheme event on Sunday 12th May 2019, when we open the grounds to the public and our resident historian David Hill gives guided tours.

We are looking for about ten local people to join our volunteer group, Friends of Walhampton, to help out occasionally when things get really busy. If you could spare some time here and there, generally for social occasions and events, we would be grateful for your support.

As with all of our staff, our volunteers need to be CRB checked - this is something that can be easily arranged with the school.

Please contact Samantha Allen on if you would like to get involved and for more information.
