OUR ACTIVITIES - WHAT WE DO!

During the year we arrange events to raise funds for the National Trust. This is often used for our four local properties by means of a National Trust wish-list. This list gives properties a chance to specify work or items  they would like that cannot be met from their normal funding.

 

The Committee arranges many events during the year, namely:

 

A Lecture Programme

 

Day Tours

 

Winter and Summer Lunches

 

The Association Holiday

 

A Carol Service and optional lunch to follow.

 

These events are not 'set in stone' and the Committee is always pleased to receive other suggestions from members.
