The Charlecote house elf blog has been quiet recently as the team have said goodbye to Sam and welcomed two new elves- Jess and Nic.
As new house elves we’ve been here for 3 months and as well as getting to know everyone we’ve been keen to get stuck in- as you can see from these lovely photos of us hunting for mould in the Drawing Room!
We’re not the only new starters though. To welcome our new conservation volunteers we had a busy training day to cover the basics of preventative conservation and get to know the new team. The day was a great success, not least because of the very educational Charlecote conservation themed cakes baked by one of our house elves (though there were not many takers for the mould cake)!
We’ve also been getting to grips with the daily conservation tasks, from dusting and vacuuming the house, to building a Christmas tree and hosting a film crew (keep an eye out for the RSC’s production of Love’s Labour’s Lost & Won) – every day has been different.
We’re both looking forward to our time here at Charlecote and hope to keep you updated with what’s going on in the world of the house elves.
