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 café 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
