'Volunteering as a walk leader has allowed me to share with people the things I love. I enjoy helping visitors to explore the countryside and discover the unique local history of the village.'

'I enjoy meeting new people and sharing stories. A favourite comment I hear from visitors is how the Hall feels like a warm family home still. For me volunteering at Eyam Hall is a fun day out.'

'As a garden volunteer, working in such a beautiful space is ideal. I enjoy tasks that allow me to be hands on, particularly hand shearing the hedges. Seeing my finished work always makes me proud.'
