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.
