Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is fortunate to have beautiful gardens and all sorts of lovely outside areas at our sites in Buckinghamshire and East Riding of Yorkshire. We are immensely proud that our gardens at both sites, reflect the care we take in all aspects of our work, and that we have convivial spaces as well as quiet corners for staff, volunteers, partnerships, dogs, visitors and guests to rest a while. 

We are looking for volunteers local to the Beatrice Wright Centre in Bielby, to come for a couple of hours a week to help maintain our gardens and grounds. Duties will include keeping paths and borders maintained with interesting and attractive planting. There are also a number of garden areas that require regular attention.
