The role of mill guide at Anglesey Abbey covers many different aspects, but for David, learning about the workings of the machinery and being able to demonstrate how it all works to visitors is what keeps him coming back week after week.
David provides a service for those who find it difficult to walk long distances, for those who want to escape from the rain, and for those who just want to hitch a ride and get to some of Ickworth's beautiful spots more quickly.
Blickling Estate welcomes 150,000 visitors through the doors every year and we couldn't do it without our band of volunteers who give a warm and friendly welcome to everyone as they arrive. Meet one of them, Karen.
On retirement, John felt he had time on his hands and wanted to give something back to the community. He wanted a volunteer role where he could do something useful and rewarding, that would give back to others.
It's the skills, time and passion of our volunteers that make our places special. Whether you're looking to help in the great outdoors, or inside our houses, we have some exciting volunteer opportunities near you.
