The grade II* listed Sefton Park Palm House is looking for volunteers.

Currently, the iconic venue has 25 people on its volunteering programme, and is now looking for friendly, energetic and enthusiastic individuals to join the team.

Volunteers take part in a number of key roles, with guided tours and introductory talks just two of the tasks involved with being a Palm House Steward.

Anyone can volunteer and Palm House has welcomed a diverse range of volunteers over the years, from students looking to enhance their CVs, to professionals in need of time banking opportunities, and the retired with life experiences to share.

Kate Martinez, visitor experience manager of Sefton Park Palm House, said:

We pride ourselves on the famous welcome that we give to our visitors at Sefton Park Palm House, and our volunteers play a huge role in that, as they are the first faces that people meet when they walk through our doors.

Palm House stewards have an important part to play in ensuring that our visitor experience continues to stay exemplary.

Our stewards will have the opportunity to learn new skills as well as making new friends and gaining experiences that will stay with them for a very long time.

– Kate Martinez, Sefton Park Palm House
