How to join

We do not have a formal membership with our group, however all volunteers completing a total of at least 50 hours in a year will receive a National Trust Volunteer Card. This is valid for one year and allows free entry to all NT properties, some of the benefits of NT membership, plus discount off purchases in NT shops and cafes, as well as a range of other discounts.

The group is primarily for adults of all ages and abilities. Under 18s are also welcome to attend, but they must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult throughout the task, and a parental consent form will need to be completed and signed.

No subscription is payable. The intention is to publish details of tasks on the website as soon as they are confirmed rather than publish a periodic paper programme. Paper copies will be available if you need them.

The Group is run by a Committee of active members comprising: Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, and committee members, mostly with additional responsibilities. The Committee meets at least once a year as required, and these meetings are open to non-committee Members. The Annual General Meeting is held in May each year.

The Group buys and owns its own collection of tools which are maintained by a committee Member. Insurance is provided by the Trust whilst we are working on NT property.
