Long service recognised

TWO volunteers at Canons Ashby have been recognised after more than 50 years of service.

Peter and Joan Grimwade have together given more than half a century of voluntary service to the National Trust, both at Canons Ashby and at Ham House in Richmond.

Mr Grimwade has volunteered for 20 years while his wife has been involved for more than 30 years.

They have been volunteering at Canons Ashby on Tuesdays as room guides, sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for the past.

The couple were presented with gifts, letters of thanks and long service badges on behalf of The National Trust.

Canons Ashby is also currently looking for new volunteers. If you are interested, call Chris Maltby on 01788 890576 or email her at Chris.Maltby@nationaltrust.org.uk.
