How our volunteers make our places in South Derbyshire and Leicestershire

Our volunteers in South Derbyshire and Leicestershire are a very important part of our team. Without them, there would be few people to welcome you or tell you about the places we care for, few people to work in the garden creating the beautiful spectacles year after year, few people to take photos, update our website and tell you all about what's going on. In fact, we rely on our volunteers to keep us going. Thank you to each and every one.
