Garden volunteersAs a registered charity we rely on the goodwill of our volunteers to maintain the gardens, open the shop and guide visitors around the house.

If you would like to become part of our small, very friendly team, please contact us.

Current volunteer projects include:

NADFASNADFAS – A group of volunteers from NADFAS (The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies)†is currently undertaking a project to conserve all the books in the Laurence Sterne Trustís collection.

Internship – We currently have 3 Interns from York and Northumbria University working with our Collections Officer on a project to record the collection digitally. Each year we offer a number of internships for three months starting in June. If you are interested in taking part in our Summer 2012 internship project, please contact us to register your interest.
