We’re pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Volunteer Co-ordinator, Natalie Butler, who will be working 2.5 days a week for NAT.

Although not very much volunteer activity is possible at the moment she will spend the next few weeks getting to know NAT’s existing volunteers, and planning for activities once things have returned to more normal. Natalie introduces herself below:

I have always had a keen interest in Norfolk’s past, and was raised walking and exploring its historic landscape. I particularly enjoy sunny spring days wandering around the Roman Town at Caistor, seeing the splash of a colourful spring leap into action and relaxing by the river watching the fish bask in the sun.

I studied History and History of Art BA and Landscape History MA at the University of East Anglia and have previously worked for the Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, and the National Trust as well many projects as a freelance professional.

I feel privileged to be working for NAT – we have a diverse range of sites across Norfolk, and a fantastic team of passionate volunteers who support us.

I enjoy spending my free-time volunteering and getting involved in community projects. I’m a Brownie leader and South Norfolk’s Division Commissioner for Girlguiding Norfolk. I also enjoy researching my family history and growing vegetables at home in South Norfolk with my husband and two children.

Are you interested in volunteering for NAT? We have a range of sites and opportunities for everyone across Norfolk from remote volunteering to sheep watching. If you can help us one hour a month or an hour a day, please get in touch: nataliebutler@norfarchtrust.org.uk
