The RSPB shop at Carsington Water is looking to expand our team of dedicated retail volunteers to give more support in the shop throughout the week.
You'll ensure that all visitors to the shop have a pleasurable and interesting time! We need you to approach customers and engage them in conversation, whether it's to offer them help or advice, or just to have a chat. You never know where a conversation may lead; you may end up selling a pair of binoculars or even signing up a new RSPB member!
Memberships are really important to the RSPB and we'd like you to help us to promote the work that we do, encourage membership, and help us to reach our membership targets. We also need help with maintaining the retail displays, operating the till and dealing with customer transactions and enquiries.
We'll give you all the training you need, and you will be a part of a friendly and knowledgable team. If you want to know more, please follow the link below, or copy and paste it into your web browser.
Help us to save nature in an enjoyable and rewarding way!
Carsington Water is usually quite windy, as many of our regular visitors will know! When this is combined with snow, it makes huge drifts and that means it's another snow day for the RSPB staff and volunteers from the shop. The Severn Trent Rangers usually manage to battle the snow with tractors, gritters and sheer brute force, so it must be really bad up there today!
The snow looks beautiful at Carsington Water, unfortunately the RSPB shop is closed because of it! We hope to open again tomorrow for our optics demo and children's quiz trail. It is very much dependent on the snow...
Spring has sprung! Well, it has in the RSPB shop. The new Spring range features new-style bird tables that are sturdy and attractive. There are also new nest box designs, with attractive leaf patterns on the front. Our Kitchen and Household ranges include beautiful tins, espresso sets, egg cups and large shopping bags, all with a cheerful birdy design on them. We also have some lovely aprons, mugs, oven gloves and tea towels, featuring blue butterflies, now in stock.
There are lots more exciting new products for you to discover, as well as our brilliant range of binoculars, telescopes, bird feeders and plenty of bird food!
We hope to see you soon.
The Summer sale is well under way at the RSPB shop at Carsington Water. There are some great deals on gifts and things for the home, and some bird food bargains to be found too!
Get them before they sell out!
