HAVING retired in 2015 and, wanting to remain active, I decided to become a volunteer at Tatton Farm, Knutsford. An opportunity arose for me to get involved in the ‘Field to Fork’ project.

Dressed in period costume, this gives me the chance to enjoy my two passions - storytelling and working with horses.

Just a couple of days a week really makes all the difference to me. No two days are the same, as I am meeting different families every day. I would recommend volunteer work to anyone. Tatton Farm is looking for more volunteers and are holding an open day on Saturday.
