Volunteering at South Foreland Lighthouse

Volunteers are needed at South Foreland Lighthouse to welcome visitors to the building. The lighthouse is owned by the National Trust and stands on the cliff top just outside the village of St. Margaret’s, near Dover.

Last year, a new interactive display was installed and a new reception area and shop were opened. This year the final stages of improvements will be revealed, including a tea room. Because of all the changes, more volunteers are needed to help welcome visitors and share this special place.

There are many roles available, and no prior experience or knowledge is needed for any, as full training will be given. As well as looking for people to guide visitors round the tower, we are also seeking volunteers for the reception/shop, to ‘meet and greet’, to sell raffle tickets, storytellers, to help at events or even to cover lunch time. If you can’t spare a whole day, don’t worry, we are very flexible regarding hours.

To find out more, just come along to the lighthouse when we are open. Telephone Janet or Jon 01304 852463 or 01304 853281.
