Heritage Trail Tour Guide

Do you have a passion for local history?

A local Town Team is looking for someone to dress up in period costume and guide walking groups around Rochford and/or the Old House, while also learning about local history.

Preparation is undertaken at home, with occasional training/meetings - unfortunately costumes are not provided.  Events involve either a walking tour of Rochford lasting about an hour, or guiding people around the Old House (which is not wheelchair accessible and has narrow/uneven stairs & passageways).

Events are run periodically throughout the year, so volunteers are asked for their availability each time an event is planned.  It is important that you consider your reliability and commitment before agreeing to volunteer at an event.
