Staff at Kelmarsh Hall would like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped out at the recent ‘Snowdrop Spread’.
An appeal was made for help with the digging, dividing and re-planting of these spring flowers to encourage their spread across the Estate. In response, several members of the public stepped forward and worked alongside Kelmarsh’s cohort of garden volunteers to get the job done. All the snowdrops were replanted as planned and the enthusiastic team of volunteers even managed to make a start on the yellow aconite too.
The event follows last year’s successful Big Bulb Plant challenge in which volunteers helped to plant more than 5,000 fritillary bulbs in two days. The fruits of their labour can now be seen emerging along the driveway, creating a stunning display of fritillaries that can be viewed up close.
Kelmarsh Hall is in the care of a charitable trust and our growing team of volunteers play a vital role in safeguarding the hall and gardens for future generations. If you would like to know more about volunteering opportunities click here.
