Fancy looking after farmyard animals, putting your acting skills to the test as a costumed character, or maybe caring for a medieval herb garden?
Kent Life Heritage Farm Park, near Maidstone, launches a new Volunteer Scheme this week, giving everyone the chance to enjoy their passion and help make a real difference at one of the county’s best-loved attractions.
In return for giving just 30 hours of your time in a calendar year, you will be given a Volunteer Pass entitling you to free access to all of Kent Life’s fantastic events, which include the annual Hops ‘n’ Harvest Beer Festival, Christmas on the Home Front, and the hugely popular Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular. The Volunteer Pass will also give you 20% off refreshments at Dotty’s Tearoom.
Kent Life general manager Emily Hirons says: “Volunteers are incredibly important to us because we simply couldn’t do all the wonderful work we do without them.
“The opportunities are really varied and adaptable to your skills and interests. You can work in the farmyard with the animals, help us with the gardening, dress up as a character in one of our historic houses, or simply help out in the office.
“If you have a real passion for what you enjoy, a fun and positive attitude, and are keen to support the great team we have here, we want to hear from you, whatever your age!
“The scheme is very flexible so you can choose what days you work. As long as you give us 30 hours of your time in a year, you can enjoy lots of great entertainment and fun days out here at Kent Life for free.”

Kent community news
Kent is home to thousands of local charities and not for profit community groups. They serve local people and support a wide range of good causes at home and abroad. Behind every organisation is a person or group of people committed to making a difference to the object of their good cause. At Yourcounty we aim to provide free coverage of any local organisation looking for some promotion within these pages.
How can we help?
If you send us some relevant and original copy, we'll publish it within our community section where possible. Across the website we receive more submissions for inclusion that we can use but for the community pages we try to find a home for all worthy material that we receive. As long as the information is connected to a good cause and linked to Kent in some way we're likely to find a way to use it.
Your feedback counts
The Yourcounty community pages really only scratch the surface of the not for profit activity in the county. We generally publish material as we receive it. If you or your organisation has a story to tell or wants to make some suggestions about the quality or quantity of our coverage let us know. Please type 'community' in the title of your email.
