Volunteers

Our volunteer team are the heart and soul of the Barn and we really could not run without the passion, dedication, enthusiasm, and experience that volunteers have shown over the years. Some people volunteer weekly, some monthly, and some at large events which are once or twice a year. We have the flexibility to fit with your current commitments and interests.
