The National Trust is inviting new volunteers to join the team looking after Exmouth's A la Ronde house and grounds.

Anyone interested can come along to a coffee morning this Friday (February 9) to find out more.

There is a variety of roles for volunteers, who can decide how much time they want to contribute. Volunteers are needed to welcome visitors to the property, help look after the collections of shells and curios, maintain the gardens and sort second-hand books for the on-site bookshop.

A spokesperson for the National Trust said: "Whatever interests you, whether you have existing skills or are wanting to learn more, there is a rewarding role for you at A la Ronde. Whether you can commit for just a few hours or a lot more, do come and find out how you could be part of the team."

The coffee morning will be open from 10.30am until 12.30 on February 9. A la Ronde is currently closed for the winter season, but there will be signs directing visitors to the event.
