But currently, we aim to open our site from midday to 3 on weekends and Mondays. Other days of the week may happen, if/when our lead staff indicate availability. One of our group phones around the week prior, to see who is available, and a roster is then uploaded to the website: see www.dunedincablecars.co.nz/volunteer.html

SUPERVISION AND TRAINING

We invite volunteers to read the material on our website, www.dunedincablecars.co.nz, in order to become familiar with the aims and history of the project. We also have a Facebook contact, www.facebook.com/MorningtonCableCars

Otherwise, training is on site, by observing how our Lead staff deal with the public, and volunteers then becoming more involved as they become familiar with the process.
