Volunteers from Lincolnshire Co-op got a taste of history as they worked to spruce up the grounds of Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum.
As well as clearing weeds and overgrowth, colleagues also helped to plant bulbs and lay wood chips.
Marketing manager Sam Turner pitched in to lend a hand, as well as two colleagues from Lincolnshire Co-op’s Woodhall Spa Food Store, Zonda Crick and Carol Allbones. Head of collections at the museum, Patricia Duke-Cox, praised the hard work of all three volunteers, who she said had worked exceptionally hard. “We really do appreciate the work that was done,.”
Volunteering Co-ordinator Rachel Sampher, said she was pleased with the progress made: “It was great to see what a big difference one day and additional hands could make to a relatively small project like this one.
“Our volunteers worked really hard to improve the museum’s gardens.”
