Weston Park was gifted to the nation in 1986 by the present and current Earl of Bradford and is vested in the Weston Park Foundation, a registered charity. Weston Park is responsible for the preservation and maintenance of the magnificent house, contents and parkland so Weston can be enjoyed by the public for future generations.
They currently have a large team of over 100 volunteers who play a vital role in supporting the Foundation and are always looking for new volunteers to help in a variety of different ways.
Volunteers can become involved in guiding visitors in the House, assisting in the Granary Art Gallery, helping with school parties in the Education Department, gardening or acting as Park Rangers during the public open season. There are also other volunteer opportunities which may arise during the course of the year such as helping with research or working alongside the Conservation Housekeeper within the House.
