The Spike Heritage Centre (Guildford)


The Spike is an Edwardian Vagrants’ Ward in Guildford which was part of a Victorian Workhouse.

Now renovated , the Heritage Centre provides educational and entertaining tours for groups of all ages.

We need a volunteer to assist with the running of the office and general administration of the centre during opening times.

Enjoyment of working with people is key as you will be part of an enthusiastic team.

Some knowledge of administration and office work would be useful but not essential as full training and support will be given.

Additional training courses can be made available including First Aid and Fire Safety.

Hours are flexible and most volunteers commit to a morning or afternoon once or twice a month. All hours are open to negotiation and based around opening times which are

Tuesday and Saturday   10am to 1pm and 1pm to 4pm

We provide refreshments, out of pocket expenses and free parking.
