"The work around the historic site and helping keep the grounds, which have been sympathetically and imaginatively planted by Green Estate, maintained is a real pleasure. Apart from the interest of the site, it’s a fabulous resource which is well used by local groups, schools and the Discovery Centre is a real asset. The historical interest extends throughout the site, even the boundary wall is fascinating. It’s a great project to be involved with. I volunteer because I want to keep active and involved, it gives me a focus in the week and I enjoy meeting people."
