Kingston Lacy - National Trust volunteers needed


Since Covid-19 the Trust has been losing a lot of volunteers, not necessarily because of Covid, but for a variety of reasons. At the moment we have the bare minimum number of people, which means that sometimes parts of the house cannot be opened, which is disappointing for the visitors. On one occasion the house could not be opened at all, because only three volunteers turned up!!  Use this button to download further information

DACA will be holding their Showcase 2022 between Friday 5th and Tuesday 9th August, at Purbeck School, Wareham.  This will include craft stalls from Dorset craft workers, competitions, children’s workshops and sales galleries.  Further details are on their website.
