Events planner

We are a small, friendly charity looking after the historical Puttenham Barn. Guests enjoy a back to basics stay with the support of trained wardens, and benefit from our work to conserve and make the Barn environmentally sustainable.

Are you inspired by our project? Would you like to coordinate our public and private events, so that Puttenham Barn can be enjoyed by even more people? We need someone to focus on these two main areas:

  • Planning and organising public events for the Barn, with support from other volunteers
  • Planning and organising smaller social events for members e.g. arranging speakers/ group walks

This would suit someone creative and with initiative. 

Experience of organising events beneficial but not essential. 

If you are good at planning and communication, and can engage with people, we want to hear from you!


The role would be mainly working from home and at the Barn for events, on average a few hours a month but whenever time permits. Very flexible hours.

If you are interested, please apply and complete the form alongside this description. We will then get in touch with you for an informal chat. 

We value all of our volunteers and try to place them in areas of activity that best suit their skills and interests - we look forward to welcoming you to our amazing team!

Mission Statement


Puttenham Barn is run by a small environmental charity called Project Oasis North Downs (POND).

Its mission is to provide simple inexpensive overnight accommodation in a 250 year old barn, in an environmentally responsible way.

It is aimed at walkers, cyclists & people enjoying the surrounding beautiful countryside.

The Barn has many environmental features including solar panels (on its bike shed!), rainwater harvesting & local varieties of apple trees in the garden.

We aim to open at weekends, during school holidays and on as many other nights as we can between Easter & October.
