The team behind the running of a Grade II listed building is appealing for more volunteers to get involved.

Those at Rainham Hall, Broadway, Rainham, which is owned by the National Trust, are looking for “cafe volunteers” and “visitor welcome volunteers” to join its friendly team.

The hall completely opened its doors and welcomed visitors for the first time in October 2015, following a £2.5 million extensive conservation and interpretation project.

Rainham Hall was built in 1729 by John Harle, part of a family of sea merchants in north-east England, who shipped coal, food and other goods around the Baltic and the Mediterranean.

The attraction is filled with insights from residents, groups and even art students, telling the tale of the building’s history.
