Various opportunities

The Royal Gunpowder Mills is reliant on the time, skills, knowledge and hard work given by the team of volunteers. The team works to preserve and share the site and its unique history, for the visitors and for the future.

The volunteers give their time to support the work of RGM in a variety of ways. We can arrange to meet you to discuss your interests and guide you through the wide range of volunteering opportunities. 

Your contribution will help the charity to thrive, while giving you the opportunity to enjoy the special atmosphere of the surroundings, have the satisfaction of supporting worthwhile projects and the knowledge that you have spent your precious time wisely.

We are reopening for events in April 2021 and there will be lots to do before then so please do register your interest in volunteering. We will have volunteer vacancies in the following areas;

‘To help with visitor services, upkeep of the site and buildings, to prepare for re-opening, to assist with nature conservation and if you have a specific skill or talent you think would be helpful to us’ please get in touch .
