As one of lovely volunteers tells us:
'I've been a volunteer at Sissinghurst since the summer of 2009; a relatively short time in comparison to many of the volunteers who have been coming for much longer.
I had visited Sissinghurst Castle many times and always enjoyed its atmosphere and the beauty of its garden. Because it's so famous as a garden I assumed that there would be no shortage of volunteers and a prospective one would need to have a gardening or historical background. I was very pleasantly surprised that neither of these attributes were needed but enthusiasm and a willingness to learn was essential.
I quickly found that the volunteers at Sissinghurst Castle are a friendly and helpful lot and I soon learned about the garden, the castle and their history. I work as a steward in the library and the tower, with strolls around the garden from time to time. This year however I started on an exciting new venture with five other volunteer colleagues; giving introductory talks to visitors before they go into the garden.'
