Regular features of our annual programme have been the Winter Lunch which is normally held on the last Friday in November and a members' lunch held after the Carol Service. In 2015, the Committee decided the Association's summer event should also be a lunch. Around fifty people attended this event and it has been felt appropriate to repeat the format in 2017.


If you are a current National Trust member and interested in joining our events then, in the first instance, please send an email to giving full contact details so that we can send you a booking form.




Our Summer Event will again be held at the Shaw Country Hotel, Shaw on Wednesday 9th August 12.30 for 1.00 p.m.




There will of course be a bar for those wishing to have a drink before or with their meal. Tea and coffee (at an extra charge of £2 payable on the day) will be available after lunch. Weather permitting this could be enjoyed outside on the patio of the hotel.


If you wish to sit with friends please let the organiser know, but maybe it would be nice for us all to meet at least one person we have not met before at a National Trust event.


I do hope you will be able to join us for lunch and as always there will be a raffle to boost the funds raised by the Association for National Trust.

Bookings should be made, with your menu choice, as soon as possible and certainly no later than Wednesday 27 July.
