THREE enthusiastic volunteers braved the cold and snowy weather to enrol as the latest volunteers at Cosmeston Medieval Village.
Catherine, Wayne and Alun were given a tour of the site by Henry Hogg the Swine Herd and Walter the village Reeve.
The new recruits will provide a helping hand with a range of tasks to assist with the upkeep of the village. From gardening and general maintenance around the grounds and buildings, to assisting with interior furnishings and even dressing up in full medieval costumes to assist during school and public tours – there’s never an idle moment for Cosmeston’s hard working volunteers.
New volunteer, Alun Davies, explains why he decided to get involved in volunteering at Cosmeston.
He said: “Having recently retired, I felt the need to involve myself in a local community project. I find every day at the Medieval Village is varied and different, and I come away with a huge feeling of achievement.”
Steve Latham, country parks and commons manager said: “It’s great to see people giving up their spare time to support this valuable project. Our volunteers make a valuable contribution in assisting our staff with the running of the village so we’re always delighted to welcome new volunteers into the fold.”
