Gardening Volunteers

Would you like to take part in gardening volunteering in Poole Park?!  This can involve pruning, weeding and clearing as well as eating cake! No experience needed, all tools are provided, just bring suitable footwear and old clothing. We work and meet at different parts of the park depending on the task that day so please contact Toni Powell for details (contact information below).

Sessions are normally 3 hours but if you can only do part of this or simply want to come and say hello, you would be very welcome!

Poole Park Kiosk

Kiosk Information helper – the Friends of Poole Park information kiosk can only open if we have enough people willing to spend a few hours handing out our information leaflets and encouraging new members to join the Friends group. This role involves telling people about activities in the park, pointing them to places they want to go and selling a number of small items.

When? Two-hour sessions from 11am – 1pm and 1pm – 3pm every day of the week

How? All volunteers will be trained and supervised how to undertake this role in their first or more sessions.  This will involve learning about information that is given out, how to use the cash box and record any sales (only small items) and how to unlock and lock up at the start and end of each day. Volunteers will only be asked to run sessions on their own once they feel confident to do so.

Thank you.
