What our volunteers say

Geoff works in the garden and shares his passion for vegetable growing with visitors. ‘I like the fellowship and fun I get from volunteering at Hardwick. I also enjoy working with Ricky, the Head Chef, to grow herbs and vegetables for him to use in the restaurant.’

Brenda works within a few volunteers teams at Hardwick; Learning, Room Guiding and Living History. ‘It feels good to be able to share the history and story of Hardwick in various ways. It’s also great to see students enjoying their visit here and sharing their memories with their families when they make a return visit.’
