Poole Park Kiosk
The Information Kiosk is undergoing a revamp! Volunteers have been re-painting the outside and we plan to improve the display inside so that it reflects works and activities taking place within the Poole Park Life project.
Poole Park Kiosk
Kiosk Information helpers
The Kiosk can only open to the public after the revamp if we have enough people willing to spend a few hours overseeing the display. The role involves telling visitors about the works and activities taking place in the park, providing basic information regarding Poole Park’s heritage and running simple activities such as a Heritage Quiz or Nature Table.
How? All volunteers will be trained and supervised how to undertake this role in their first or more sessions, and will only be asked to run sessions without 1:1 support once they feel confident to do so.
Please contact Toni Powell if you would like further details about this volunteering opportunity; you can email Toni at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01202 261757.
