Volunteers needed to help facilitate Sewerby Squirrels
New volunteer under 5s facilitators are being sought to support ‘Sewerby Squirrels’ – weekly sessions for the under 5s at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
These sessions run on Monday mornings during East Riding term-time. They feature themed activities, which link with the Edwardian setup of the Hall itself including the gardens, the beach, and Amy Johnson. They are well-established, having been running since September 2017, and take place in the Orangery from 10-11.30am.
Applications are welcome from anyone aged 18 or over, who enjoys working with children of this age, and has an interest in history. No qualifications or prior experience is necessary – but enthusiasm is a must! The new volunteer under 5s facilitators will assist in setting up the sessions, tidying away afterwards, and – most importantly of all – joining in the fun, supporting the youngest visitors to engage with the activities.
Individuals who are interested should visit www.eastridingmuseums.co.uk/sewerby-hall-museum/volunteering for more information.
Lucy Cooke, under 5s learning co-ordinator, said “I’m really excited to get some volunteer under 5s facilitators on board. It’s a great age to work with and a beautiful place to spend a Monday morning. We already have a great team of volunteers here at Sewerby Hall, and their support is absolutely invaluable in everything we offer.”
