Do you have a passion for Petunias? Are you crazy for Chrysanthemums? Are you giddy for Gladioli? Could you spare a few hours to help us? Then we need you! The Anderton Boat lift is looking for inventive and visionary volunteers who have an ambition to deliver and engage the thousands of visitors that visit Anderton each year. We are looking for people with a background in garden design, botany, or horticulture to assist our grounds team and provide expertise and knowledge to take our already beautiful gardens and elevate them to dizzying heights!

• Educate and inspire by sharing knowledge and ideas with our grounds team.
• Planning and designing borders for each season.
• Talking to and answering questions from our visitors about our gardens and the Anderton Boat Lift.
• General gardening work
We will be holding a taskforce on the 3rd Wednesday of the month to give you a taster of what the role entails- let us know if you'd like to be involved!
Becoming part of a friendly and dedicated team, volunteering in a beautiful environment, meeting people and making new friends, improving communication skills and enjoying new experiences to name a few, along with a real personal satisfaction that you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to our visitors’ experience.
This role will suit people who have a friendly enthusiastic manner and enjoy working with visitors. It can sometimes be physically demanding, and you may be on your feet for long periods of time. No skills are required, but previous experience and great customer service skills would be a bonus! You will be required to attend an interview as part of the selection process.
