Volunteer Stewards needed

Caerphilly Miners Centre relies on stewards for so many activities, we need reliable people to help us run the Centre and its activities.

We need volunteers that want to support their community, being on hand for different hours and days, for a variety of duties but essentially to enable the Miners to host classes and activities.

Please get in touch if you want more information.
