The next coffee time meet-up at the Gardener’s Cottage Cafe is on Tuesday 17th August at 11 am. They are very informal. Just come and find us in the walled garden and say hello. We run these every month on the 3rd Tuesday, so the next date will be Sepember 21st.
We promised that we would be updating this website with details of the amazing work done from 1999-2009 by the Valentines Park Conservationists (VPC). The VPC produced 29 newsletters during that time and are a mine of information for those interested in the park. The VPC newsletters are now available.
Last but not least volunteers are an integral part of Valentines, and help run the house on open days . From meeting and greeting visitors, to stewarding furnished rooms and exhibitions and getting involved with events. Interested? Find out more.
“It’s always a delight to escape everyday pressures to volunteer in the peaceful and beautiful surroundings of Valentines Mansion, meeting and chatting to visitors. A day volunteering almost passes too quickly but always leaves me with more special memories and knowledge. We’re a friendly and supportive bunch so we look forward to welcoming more members to the team!” Diana
