Volunteers are needed to help welcome visitors and run the tea room at Fullers Mill Garden, at West Stow.
The visitor attraction, on the banks of the River Lark, opens for the season on April 1 through until the end of September.
Annie Dellbridge, the head gardener, said: “If you have some spare time this year and want to give something back, volunteering is great fun. We are looking for energetic people that would like to join our friendly team of volunteers who are responsible for welcoming visitors, looking after entry tickets and running the tea room. We simply could not continue to open the garden to the public without the fantastic support of our volunteers.”
The garden is open to visitors three days a week but volunteers are not asked to commit to a particular number of shifts. No experience is necessary, just plenty of enthusiasm. A full induction and relevant training will be provided.
The creation of Fullers Mill was the life’s work of Bernard Tickner, who died at the end of last year.

He left it in the safe hands of the charity Perennial so that it could continue to be enjoyed by the public. With its enchanting riverside setting, the garden is a plant lover’s paradise with a huge range of rare and unusual plants.
Visitors can enjoy tea, coffee and delicious homemade cake, as well as plants for sale.
