Thanks to the dedication and support of our amazing volunteers, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities.

It is hoped to set up a ‘Service Crew’ to assist with the Warden with the care and maintenance of Thirtover Place. We are looking for people 18 and over, who are happy to offer their time and skills/labour on the weekends, able to work unsupervised either alone or maybe as part of a group. You may have extra skills that we can use, maybe an electrician, carpenter? If you live at the other end of the county, you could always come and pitch a tent and relax on site in the evening…
