We're looking for volunteers to cover Friday afternoons throughout the season. Perhaps you are a student coming home for the summer and would like to add some volunteer hours to your CV which relate to History and Architecture or perhaps you are local and interested in sharing the story of Belmont with others. We would be delighted to have you in the team so do please email your interest via email.
