Volunteer at Woolsthorpe Manor

Volunteers prepare flowers for a special event at Woolsthorpe Manor

When we ask our visitors what they enjoy about visiting, the outstanding response is that they discover 'something surprising and valuable'. One of the reasons for this is the warm welcome they receive from our volunteers.
