Become a Volunteer
The Friends are always looking for enthusiastic and willing members to become volunteers to join them in keeping the Country Park a great place to visit.
Can you spare some time to volunteer in the refreshment / information Kiosk at the back of Upton House, or use your knowledge helping out in the Plant Centre? There are many other ways you can help too, from participating in events to giving talks, from helping out with Upton House guided tours to fundraising and finding sponsorship.

Since 1976 the Friends of Upton House have raised in excess of £600,000, all of which has been spent on the restoration of the House and grounds, and improvement projects that will enhance people’s enjoyment of the Park now and into the future.
We welcome all donations, however small.
If you would like to help with future projects in the House and Country Park please send a cheque payable to The Friends of Upton Country Park to:
