“I was initially a bit apprehensive about what I could offer, but through my involvement with the project I feel that I’m beginning to become not just in the Tamar Valley, but of it. “
Over the last few months we have been working hard to ensure our volunteering program is full of opportunities for you to get involved. We want to be able to further your skills through training and appropriate support and will be tailoring our volunteer roles to make the most of the great mix of abilities, interests and commitment levels of our volunteers. For more information please download our information for volunteers fact sheet here.

• Tamar Valley Centre reception
During the summer months, we are always glad of people who can provide a warm welcome and point visitors in the right direction when looking for things to do in the Tamar Valley. If you are able to spare a few hours on the reception desk at the Tamar Valley Centre from end May – beginning September 2018, we’d love to hear from you.
• Walking for Health Walk Leaders
The Tamar Valley AONB team is seeking volunteers to lead walks and support walkers to help them stay motivated, in the Gunnislake area, that will make such a difference to many people’s every day lives. Anyone can join the group and we will be encouraging people to just come along. It will be a chance to make new friends and explore your local area, with no specialist equipment required.
• Exhibition Volunteers
The Tamar Valley Centre regularly hosts exhibitions for local artists, and with demand growing we are looking for volunteers to help us with setting up the space and moving the panels around. We would like volunteers to come in the day before an exhibition is due to be start and spend a morning/day helping to set up everything that may be needed.
