During the international crisis Oldroyd’s Corner has become very overgrown due to the lock-down. Our lovely volunteers have been unable to come to wield their usual magic and The Garden is in a bit of a state. Your help would be very welcome – all ages and abilities can safely work in The Garden in their “bubble” and enjoy socially distanced breaks with like minded people. 

Making new friends and knowing that you’re helping a great project – there are many fabulous reasons to get volunteering.

You can meet like-minded people, enjoy social activities and get active. From raised beds to rose beds, the garden at Oldroyd’s Corner need much care and attention.

Whether you’re looking to help by lending a hand in the garden, caring for our precious plants, connecting with the public or weeding and watering, we always have something exciting happening and there are plenty of different ways to get involved. There is also planting, pruning, cataloguing seeds, establishing boundaries, or supporting community groups. And as with many of our volunteer roles, you may also be approached by visitors who want to ask questions about the garden or are looking for general gardening tips – so it’s also a great way to share your love for horticulture (and pick up some ideas of your own).

Supporter groups play a vital role in bringing this unique space to life and opening them up for everyone to enjoy. It’s the skills, time and passion of our volunteers that will help to make this place special whether as an individual or as a member of a group.


Come rain or shine come and join us on Fridays every week and you can help us to bring the story of our garden to life for our visitors.
