At Othona West Dorset, up to six core members live and work full-time so that other people can visit, take part in our programmed events and share in the experience of community. We appreciate offers of volunteer help with a range of tasks, indoors and out. To find out more about our community, go to www.othonawestdorset.org.uk and browse through the pages. From time to time, we welcome help from: Locally based volunteers, coming in for the day to help us at various times with such things as: • vegetable gardening • cooking and cleaning • log splitting • grounds maintenance • painting • envelope stuffing If you are interested in joining our locals’ network, please contact us at volunteering@othona-bb.org.uk for a list of up-coming Locals’ Days and Events. Volunteers from further afield who stay with us – usually for a week – during our busiest times to help out with general core community work. This helps us cover, for instance, when core members take holidays. Almost always these volunteers will already be familiar with Othona, rather than coming for their first visit. They need to ‘know the ropes’ and be ready to take on a range of duties from welcoming visitors to cleaning or making breakfast for up to 30 people. If you’re interested in this, we ask you to spend some time with us as a visitor first.
