A TEAM of 60 volunteers are being sought to help give more public access to Wraxall’s Tyntesfield estate.

The National Trust property celebrated receiving its 1millionth visitor in 2012 and is now looking to give people an even better chance of viewing the house and its collection by opening on Fridays between July and November.

To support the venture, a whole host of new volunteers are needed to cover a variety of roles ranging from welcoming visitors to helping to tell the history of the estate.

Volunteer manager Liz Jones said: “We are looking to create a new team of enthusiastic volunteers from the local area who together will bring the house to life on Fridays.

“We’ve often been asked why we don’t open on Fridays, as we are a great stopping point for visitors both staying in North Somerset and Bristol or passing through to and from Devon and Cornwall on holiday or a long weekend.
