Open day for would-be volunteers at Iron Age village

By County Echo Reporter in Events

Castell Henllys Iron Age Village will be opening its doors on Saturday in a bid to form a new volunteer group that will help care for the unique heritage site.

An open afternoon will begin at 2pm on 11 March to welcome those who are interested in volunteering some of their time and expertise to support the prehistoric site, which is owned and run by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.

Castell Henllys manager, Jenn Jones said: "We are hoping the new group will be made up of volunteers who will be able to give a regular amount of time to help look after this special site.

"We are looking for people who will be able to assist on a practical level with tasks such as maintaining the herb garden and supporting the events held here throughout the year.

"This open afternoon will enable us to provide more detail about the volunteering opportunities that are available and also give people a chance to put forward their ideas."

There is no need to book for this informal drop-in event and there is free parking at the site, which is located off the A487 between Newport and Eglwyswrw.

If you are interested in joining the volunteer group at Castell Henllys but are unable to attend on the day, please register your interest by calling 01239 891319 or email enquiries@castellhenllys.com.
