We are keen to encourage lots of opportunities for people with a variety of skills and interests to become involved at ‘The Mill’.


There is so much to do to keep this very special place alive and available to everyone in the community, and our volunteers will be central to this work.

Why Volunteer?
The Mill buildings and wooded valley are steeped in history and used every day by the residents for recreation and education. Our team of Volunteers are so important in helping us maintain the site at Willsbridge Mill and keeping it functional for the community.
People offer their services at The Mill for lots of reasons, but some of the benefits are:

  • Connect to the environment and nature
  • Improve mental health and wellbeing
  • Contribute to local community and make new friends
  • Learn new skills
  • Get ready to work again

What work do Volunteers do?
We have a wide variety of tasks suited to all abilities and interests including:

  • Forest development and maintenance
  • Garden/Landscape maintenance
  • Litter Picking
  • Events
  • Shop/Cafe staff
  • Marketing opportunities

We also welcome all ideas you may have and really want to encourage development of the area.


If you would like to get involved and join our friendly team of volunteers, please drop us an email to: volunteer@willsbridgemill.com, we would love to hear from you, and we are keen to involve as many people as possible!

Alternatively, feel free to come down and speak to Mike, or one of our Volunteers working the land.
