Volunteer at Hospitalfield

Volunteers are vital to the work that we do at Hospitalfield, bringing skills, knowledge and enthusiasm and providing their time with the greatest generosity.

Volunteer Opportunities

Becoming a Volunteer at Hospitalfield is interesting, rewarding and fun. There are a number of roles that volunteers can play and all sorts of ways to get involved:

  • Hospitalfield Guide We have excellent volunteer tour guides who have an astonishing amount of knowledge about the history of the estate.
  • Public Programme We work with volunteers to develop aspects of the public programme. We could not operate our popular Open Weekend series without the support of volunteers who invigilate the historic rooms, offer a friendly greeting to our visitors and help us to manage service at our super ‘pop-up’ cafe – it’s a fun way to get involved with Hospitalfield
  • Garden Club The historic gardens at Hospitalfield are made fruitful and more beautiful with the fantastic support of the Garden Club who are always looking to attract new members, please see more information below
  • Collections Care This important activity at Hospitalfield is diverse and interesting. We are currently looking to build a group of volunteer stitchers to support the care of certain aspects of the Library collection at Hospitalfield – if you enjoy sewing, come along and get involved with a new social group

Garden Club

Responding to interest we launched a Garden Club which has Garden Designer Moira Coleman as a lead advisor and is gradually building a momentum of its own. The Garden Club meets on two Thursdays each month between 10am to 1pm.

As well as maintaining and planning for the garden the Garden Club has informative outings to other gardens each year and identifies possible training needed.

Members of the Garden Club welcome visitors to the garden as part of Scotland’s Gardens, each Saturday from April to September (2pm to 5pm)
