Support Group & Volunteering

Have you ever wanted to get more involved in your local park or green space in Sandwell?


Are you interested in volunteering, perhaps a spot of gardening, helping to plan events? Or maybe you have some other practical skills that you’d like to use to help others. We want to work more closely with the community and as part of this is encouraging local people to come forward and volunteer in their parks and green spaces.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, become part of the local community, learn new skills, and help maintain our wonderful parks and nature reserves as this is what makes Sandwell so special.

We are a busy and happy group of volunteers who work at events organised by both the House and ourselves. We celebrate the heritage and the history of the property and its inhabitants, and invite the local community into the house and garden.
We have a variety of roles, and working patterns, which are tailored to individuals.

Duties are suitable for people of all ages and abilities, and training is given.
Our Craft group meet on the last Thursday of each month between 1.30 and 3.30, making items for charity. You are welcome to bring along your own projects, or needles and wool are provided. Members are happy to teach novices too.
