Ian Baxter-Pownall joined the newly formed windpump volunteer team at Horsey Windpump as a volunteer in 2018; here is his story.
Name: Ian Baxter-Pownall
Career background: Catering industry
How long have you volunteered with the National Trust? Since April 2018 at Sheringham Park and August 2018 at Horsey Windpump.
Volunteer role(s): Windpump Volunteer
What do you get up to as a volunteer? I talk to visitors coming into the Windpump about the history and how it works.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering with the National Trust? Since I retired I have found it has enhanced my quality of life being a volunteer for the trust. I enjoy meeting people at the two sites, engaging with them and helping them learn about what each site has to offer. I also share a great camaraderie with all the other volunteers and it gives me a new purpose in life.
Most special volunteering moment: One of the best experiences I got from being a volunteer was witnessing the cap put back on Horsey Windpump and seeing the wind turn the sails
