Calling all green-fingered volunteers! YHA Berwick needs your help from 4th-7th May to keep our gardens looking top notch!

With a dedicated volunteer gardener we always have stunning exterior spaces, and even have the accolade of winning a Communities in Bloom award in 2017. But to maintain these standards, and keep up with the ambitions and vision of our amazing gardener, we need your help! Tasks we are hoping to complete over the long weekend are: building and painting new exterior seating, setting up new solar lighting in the yard and mains powered lighting at the front, building a “Sea-dog” garden feature and generally washing and tidying up the exterior space.

We can offer free accommodation in shared single-gender dorms for the duration of the working holiday. We are asking volunteers to arrive on Friday morning so we can get a half days work in on the Friday, followed by a full day on Saturday and Sunday. You would depart on Monday morning. As a thank you to you, we will be having a barbecue for volunteers on the Sunday night (weather permitting!)
