Volunteer Garden Party

It is #volunteersweek and we know just how valuable volunteers are to Shuttleworth. To recognise the importance of their contribution, Shuttleworth hosted an informal garden party on Tuesday 30 April in the Swiss Garden as a volunteer ‘thank you’.

Invited to afternoon cream tea with Dorothy Shuttleworth’s granddaughter, Princess Charlotte von Croӱ, many of our volunteers took the opportunity to talk with her about the work they undertake for the Trust. Princess Charlotte has many happy memories here at Shuttleworth, having spent time at The House as a child. As a former trustee for the Trust Charlotte enjoyed the opportunity to talk with current volunteers, including those looking after the Swiss Garden, our vehicle team, members of the Airfield Volunteer Fire Service (AVFS) and Honorary life member of the Shuttleworth Veteran Aircraft Society, Ken Cox MBE.
