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
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.
