Anyone who would like to work as part of a happy volunteer team, is invited attend a Volunteering Open Morning 
at Kiplin Hall.

On Thursday August 11, the staff at Kiplin Hall are inviting people to go along and learn more about the opportunities available to become involved in helping to run this interesting house and garden.

Kiplin Hall is a 400-year old Jacobean house, standing in 150 acres of gardens and grounds between Richmond and Northallerton.

The house was built by George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I and founder of Maryland, USA.

This year, 20 people have joined the Kiplin team, bringing the number of volunteers to 129, working in various capacities. The roles they carry out include gardening, greeting people and selling tickets at the till, assisting in the Tea Room and acting as room stewards, who play a dual role of telling visitors about Kiplin and the history of the house and its owners, while keeping an eye on the contents of the rooms. Still more people are needed as volunteers to help run the house, gardens and tea room.

If you would like to attend the Kiplin Hall Volunteer Open Morning on August 11, call to book a place. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to talk to you between 10am and noon, coffee and cake will be served and you may join a tour of the house after noon.

If you are unable to attend, call Rosie Kluz to find out more about the opportunities available on 01748 818178 or email info@kiplinhall.co.uk
