Get Involved



Volunteering with us will be engaging, inspirational and rewarding.

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic volunteers to help with various different aspects of Mill life.  We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with an interest in greeting and meeting visitors to the Mill, or with skills in retail, visitor centres, landscaping and gardening, fundraising and administration.  All skill sets are valuable and appreciated!  We are a friendly bunch, so please get in contact if you would like to know more.

Profile of Val Godman, one of our volunteers ...

I have been a volunteer at Walford Mill for probably eighteen years now and it is a great place for keeping up to date with arts and craft exhibitions and for watching Makers working, it also runs adult and children's classes.

Having previously previously been a senior lecturer in a college and also produced my own work it has been lovely to be 'part of something' and to see what the various makers are doing and I find it rewarding to meet visitors of all ages, and talk about the things that the mill has to offer.

There are opportunities for volunteers of all ages and for anyone who feels they can contribute in a number of different ways and can use their knowledge either in the gallery, or administrative, maintenance, marketing areas, and help to make visitors feel welcome.   Overall to help in anyway needed at the time and hopefully to make someone's day better!

I have made some wonderful friends in the years I have volunteered at Walford Mill . Anyone who is interested, flexible and feels that in any small way they can tribute and be an extra pair of hands when needed will find it a rewarding place to be involved in.
