THE National Trust is hoping a volunteer day will encourage a number of new recruits.

Hughenden Manor and West Wycombe Park both need new volunteers to help out at the properties.

And people are also needed to help care for 3,000 acres of Chilterns countryside, including West Wycombe and Coombe Hill.

Whether your interest lies with history, gardening, helping with events or the countryside, they have the right volunteering opportunity for you.

Room guides are needed for Hughenden Manor (open throughout the year) as are gardeners. The Volunteer Open Day is on March 15 from 10am to 1pm at Hughenden Manor.

Alternatively, if you would like some further information, contact or call 01494 755573.
