Sheldon

Summer Workparty

Led by the Sheldon team

A mix of practical work around the grounds, gardens, buildings and kitchens. We aim to have work for every level of skill and stamina! Social distancing makes it different but we can still have good healthy outdoor fun together. Sometimes we tackle a big job like planting a hedge or redecorating a whole building. We also have lots of smaller jobs lined up like weeding patios, planting potatoes, pruning shrubs. And every day there's food to cook for the hungry masses! We expect volunteers to pitch in and enjoy a good day's work, but we absolutely don't expect to work you to the bone. In fact some people have even described a Sheldon workparty as food and drink interspersed with a little light work! Seriously though, volunteer workparties are a brilliant way for the Sheldon team to stay on top of the work involved in keeping Sheldon looking fabulous for guests to enjoy. We really appreciate the company of volunteers and the ability to blitz jobs that are great fun as a team but no fun at all for one person. And yes, we expect to have concerts in the open air theatre returning for 2022!

We have our daily routine of Community morning prayers and compline - probably in the barn. 

This event is open to everyone.
