Volunteer with us

Our aim is to create, with the help from anyone who wishes to join us in a truly exciting waterside community development that is enjoyable for each and everyone of us; a great place to be to celebrate what Woodbridge means to us all!

There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to join in. We would love to talk to anyone who has something to offer and who can see that our project might interest them. Please get in touch if you would like to be involved (see the contact page for details).

Volunteering opportunities

The Longshed Gift Shop

We have a vibrant and interesting gift shop retailing greetings cards, books, gifts and souvenirs, items for children etc. We would be delighted if you could spare a few hours a week or even occasionally to help in our shop. It is a great oppotunity to meet members of the public, to socialise and inform them of our other activities

The John Gibbins Gallery.

In our gallery we have our permanent exhibition of  The King’s River Tapestry and an original painting “Images of Sutton Hoo” by Robert Melamphy. We offer children (and adults who wish) the chance to take part in quizes about out exibits.The gallery is also an opportunity to view the work on the replica ship being constructed in the workshop below.

We need stewards to meet and greet members of the public who wish to take the opportunity to see and learn about all that is there.

Events, activities and exhibitions

There are all sorts of opportunities in which to get involved – ranging from background research, design, publicity, talking to visitors, or helping with planning and administration. We are constantly planning new events and exhibitions in the John Gibbins Gallery. at which volunteers are needed to help. Just let us know what sort of thing you would be interested in doing


There is so much going on but people still tell us that they didn’t know anything about us and sometimes even where we are sited. If you are interested in taking photos, writing pieces for the website or press please help us get the word out.

Please fill out the contact form telling us a little bit about yourself, and the ways you might like to help.
