Why volunteer at Lyme?

People volunteer at Lyme for different reasons; to learn new skills, make new friends, to become part of friendly team or to gain experience for future employment. Meet a few of the volunteers currently helping to care for our special place.

“I felt that I needed to occupy my time in a worthwhile outdoor activity that would keep both body and mind active. My time at Lyme has enabled me to achieve the above and will continue to be one of a number of retirement activities whereby I can contribute to the local community.”
