Volunteers Week: John and Carl's story

To mark Volunteers Week we are sharing some of the stories and experiences from our great troupe of Volunteers.


 

Recently John and Carl have been a fantastic help at the Lunt Roman Fort.  

Both volunteers have already helped to clear lots of the foliage that can surround the Lunt if it is not attended to on a regular basis.  In May they assisted our Facilities Manager, Simon, to paint and protect the Granary, Gate House, storage shed and toilets.  

Simon says they have been a great help and that these buildings look completely revitalised.  At some point in the not too distant future – hopefully before the Lunt Festival this July – Simon is hoping to enlist their help in protecting the Gyrus – the circular wooden structure that was probably used to train horses in Roman times.  

Hopefully all of this activity will help to make this year’s Lunt Festival a great success. Thank John and Carl!
