An event designed to bring more volunteers to Canons Ashby House was held on Saturday.
The meet the team day was designed to let people know about the variety of opportunities available.
One of the volunteers, day leader Roger Waring, has been involved for the past four years.
He said: “I was looking for something to do after retiring. I had been aware of Canons Ashby House but not of the impact it has had across the county which I found fascinating. I look after the volunteers and help asign them tasks.
“It is a lot of fun, especially when we do the themed days. I found with the volunteering that I had some of the skills I needed and was able to develop others. It was definitely worth me doing it and I would encourage other people to do the same.”
Another similar day will be held on Saturday, February 8 from 10am to midday. For further details, call 01327 861900.
