VOLUNTEERS at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall have been thanked for their hard work and dedication.

Since opening in April, volunteers have played a huge part in its success – getting involved in everything from visitor tours to front of house roles.

Stephanie Jackson, volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Some wonderful people have joined us as volunteers and contributed their valuable time to the project.

“I’ve been delighted to see what a rewarding experience it has been for them and we also wanted to take the opportunity to thank them for their efforts.”

One of those who has been volunteering is Richard Mallison – a former teacher at KES.

Speaking about his experience so far, he said: “I get enormous pleasure from my role as a volunteer. Having taught at K.E.S., this building is a place that is very close to my heart, and I also have a great interest in history and the town, so this is the perfect way of combining all these elements.

“I have been taking groups of visitors on tours, and one of the things that I have particularly enjoyed is the opportunity to meet such a wide range of people, many from all over the world.

“In the last couple of weeks I’ve been showing around groups from France, Saudi Arabia and Canada, all absolutely fascinated to discover the story of this wonderful building.”
