Volunteer Stories: Felicity Hallam

“I have been volunteering one day a week at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens for the past 7 months as part of my History degree at the University of Birmingham. I have been able to spend much of my time focusing on one main project, researching and redesigning the historical interpretation around the site. Staff made sure that I was working on something tailored to my interests and skills and make sure that every volunteer gets the same opportunity. In my 7 months, I have designed and created hand-held interpretation boards and a twenty minute tour around the site for our visitors to use. Whilst focusing on one main project, I have always been able to get involved in every aspect of the gardens, from working in the cafĂ© with customers to marketing. There has always been amply opportunity to try something new. I have found my time at CBHG incredibly fun and fulfilling, and would encourage anyone to volunteer here!” – Felicity Hallam
