Volunteering at the Fernhurst Centre
Coming in 2019 our Good Friday 19 April   Easter Egg Hunt
Welcome to the Fernhurst Centre volunteering page. The Fernhurst Centre is a volunteer led, run and managed organisation and we are always pleased to receive offers of help from people who want to be part of the team. Volunteering at the Centre is good fun, very sociable and a great way to get to know all about Fernhurst and what goes on in the village.

The Centre is supported by a band of about 30 people who share rota duties such as manning the counter, serving drinks and refreshments and answering phone inquiries. Some volunteers offer a regular weekly slot of 2 hours or so and others are our ‘ad hoc’ helpers, who fill in as and when there are gaps due to holidays, illness or other commitments.

These volunteers are the backbone of our service and give the Centre the friendly and open atmosphere which we believe is the secret of its success.

There is plenty of training offered, volunteers can shadow existing helpers until they feel comfortable handling a rota duty on their own and travel expenses can be claimed. Volunteers are also entitled to a attend Centre courses without charge, space permitting.

We are keen to hear from anyone who has experience or would like to gain experience in a specific aspect of running an organisation, such as book keeping, marketing, health and safety or any other management or administrative role. Keeping the Centre ticking over requires all sorts of background work from arranging courses, ordering supplies or ringing round to confirm bookings and attendance and we welcome help in these areas. It can be a useful addition to a CV if you are thinking of returning to work after a career break.

If you have experience of teaching or a specific skill or hobby that others might wish to learn about, please contact the Centre. We are always looking at ways we might broaden the range of our courses, workshops or free topical talks.

If you are interested in volunteering and making a difference at this busy village enterprise, please act now and get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
