These are popular and jolly events, and a good opportunity for spending affordable time in a beautiful setting with old and new friends.  There is plenty of opportunity to work alone and contemplatively too.  As a group, we seem to achieve an amazing amount!

More information and the booking form for the Volunteer Week 10-17 August 2013 can be found on the ‘Events’ page.

Llansôr Mill has a history spanning back to the 1700s and we are committed to keeping its listed buildings and idyllic surroundings in good condition in order to serve our goal of providing a place of tranquility, reflection and creativity.
