Volunteer as a GT Community Champion

The Gardens Trust wants to recruit a cohort of GT Community Champions who can help us share our passion for historic parks, gardens and other designed landscapes, and our purpose to protect them, with their local community.

Volunteer as a GT Community Champion

We’re looking for volunteers from active local community organisations across the UK to deliver a one off ‘Garden History Lucky Dip’ activity. The aim of this activity is to share garden history stories with new audiences, helping us to promote the importance and wonder of these historic spaces with more members of the public. Traditionally, our events and activities have been designed for those with some existing knowledge of garden history, but the ‘Garden History Lucky Dip’ activity is accessible to everyone.

You can find out more about how to run  the Lucky Dip activity here:

Garden History Lucky Dip Entry Level

Lucky Dip ‘Curiosity’ Level

By delivering this activity to your local community group and becoming a Gardens Trust Community Champion, you will be helping to share our mission and increase awareness and support of vulnerable historic designed landscapes across Britain.


We’re looking for someone who:

  • Currently volunteers for an active community group in the UK
  • Can deliver at least one Garden History Lucky Dip activity session to at least 15 people before August 2023
  • Is available for an activity training session to be delivered in early 2023
  • Would like the opportunity to learn more about garden history
  • Wants to help protect and promote historic parks and gardens in the UK

No prior experience in heritage or knowledge of garden history is required!

We’d particularly like to hear from you if your organisation has never been involved with a heritage or landscape project before or if you volunteer with communities currently underrepresented in these sectors including Black, Asian and ethnic minority communities, LGBT+ people, people with disabilities, and those with experience of socio-economic disadvantage.


In return what we can offer is:

  • Relevant training needed to deliver the session
  • A resource pack containing all the materials needed for the Garden History Lucky Dip activity (which you’re free to keep and reuse!)
  • Support from our Audience Development and Engagement Officer and the wider Gardens Trust team
  • An opportunity to be involved in future events with the Gardens Trust
  • A year’s free membership of the Gardens Trust (including discounted tickets for events, membership magazine and our respected journal Garden History)

If you’re interested in being a GT Community Champion we’d love to hear from you. To apply, please complete and return the Community Champions Application Form to Frankie Taylor, Audience Development and Engagement Officer by Tuesday 31st January 2023.

Please feel free to contact Frankie for more information or to arrange an informal chat about the Community Champions scheme.

This opportunity is part of the Engaging With Our Future Project made possible with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Need HELP to complete the form just ask, the Town Clerk or the Library who will be pleased to help.

Bring photo ID to vote in May

Elections Act and voter ID

On 28 April 2022, the Elections Act 2022 was granted Royal Assent. The Act will bring major changes to the way elections are run.

One of these changes is that, from May 2023, you will need to show photographic identification (photo ID) when you visit a polling station to cast your vote.

Bring photo ID to vote in May

From May 2023, voters have to show photo ID at polling stations before they are given a ballot paper.

Read more information about the Elections Act 2022

The most commonly used photographic IDs include:

  • passports issued by:
    • the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man
    • a British Overseas Territory
    • an European Economic Area (EEA) state
    • a Commonwealth country
  • photographic driver’s licences (including provisional) issued by:
    • the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man
    • an EEA state
  • EEA photo ID cards
  • biometric residence permits
  • identity cards that bear the Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS Scheme) hologram
  • Blue Badges
  • 60+ Oyster photocards
  • Concessionary travel passes funded by the government, or a local authority. Examples include:
  • older person’s bus passes
  • disabled person’s bus passes
  • travel cards from Wales or Northern Ireland

Only original documents are accepted. Scanned images or copies will not be accepted – however, expired documents are accepted if the photo is still a current likeness.

Read the full list of photo ID that will be accepted as voter ID

What to do when you have no photo ID

If you do not have one of the accepted forms of photo ID and you would like to vote, you need to apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate.

This certificate is a free photo ID document that will allow you to vote.

You can apply for a certificate from Monday 16 January 2023.
