JOB: Forest Walking Guide
LOC: Burton upon Trent
FOR: Sinai Park House Trust
We are a charitable trust (Charity # 1172341) which manages Sinai Park House and the grounds surrounding it. We make the site accessible to the general public by running guided tours and guided walks of the site and through the National Forest which surrounds it. Tours and walks are focused around the Heritage Open Days festival in September and the National Forest Walking Festival in May but opportunities for more may arise in the near future. We are looking for people who are able to lead guided walks through the Forest and onto the site. Training on the key topics we aim to cover and the health and safety issues will be provided. We have other volunteer opportunities available so ask us for more about these when we have our initial chat. Time commitment: 10-20 hours per year. Visit https://www.sinaiparkhouse.co.uk for more on the site and email email@example.com for more information about this opportunity.
