The packed program of special events continues through the Autumn and Winter at Ashridge – The following list will help you when organising your volunteering time-table for the next four months. There are at least fourteen events to consider – one less than last year – dogs are in, but horses are out! There is a Watercolour Workshop on offer for painterly people while a WW1 Beacon of Light celebration should draw the crowds.
Details of all charges and bookings must be obtained from the Ashridge Visitor Centre before an event.

I would value some help for any of the garland making. Actually making the garland is not where I need help but preparing the room, listeningt to the wreath makers stories of other Christmases, handing out refreshments,clearing up afterwards are all equally important for them to have a joyful experience.
