The Spike Heritage Centre (Guildford)


The Spike is an Edwardian vagrants’ hostel in Guildford, which was part of a Victorian Workhouse.

Now renovated, the heritage centre offers tour packages and educational programmes.

We are looking for an enthusiastic organiser who would like to, under the direction of the Events Chairman, develop events at the heritage centre to benefit and entertain the local community as well as raising funds for the Trust to maintain this unique building.

Hours are flexible and most volunteers commit to a morning or afternoon once or twice a month. All hours are open to negotiation and could be arranged in addition to the heritage opening hours which are

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

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