Why I volunteer
Raymond Purvis has volunteered in Wallington's gardens on a weekly basis for over 8 years, he shared his highlights from his time spent volunteering at Wallington:
- The garden team here at Wallington are friendly and knowledgeable and provide an ideal environment to learn new skills around the grounds and garden.
- Seeing a Heron on Garden Pond, hearing a Woodpecker, spotting a deer or red squirrel in East Wood, before you even start your day in the historic walled garden.
- Talking to visitors and answering any questions that they might have. "It really makes my day when they thank you for the work that you're doing, it may only be a small job, but they appreciate your contribution in keeping the property in such good condition".
" As a volunteer, I am now able to be part of the National Trust Team that keeps the property in such a wonderful condition."
