The Vale of Glamorgan Association, formed in 1998, provides an interesting and enjoyable programme for members all year round.

What we do

We hold lectures on the third Wednesday of each month from September to April. These take place in Cowbridge and cover a wide range of topics.
During the summer there are three or four day trips, usually to other National Trust places though not exclusively so.
We usually hold a residential holiday in April or May. Over the last few years visits have been to Derbyshire, Harrogate, Leamington Spa and Kent. This past spring we visited Plymouth where we explored several Trust houses as well as fitting in a cruise on Plymouth Sound.
As well as enjoying ourselves, at the same time we raise funds for Trust projects, usually in South Wales but occasionally further afield.
A warm welcome awaits you so do join us - we look forward to meeting you soon.
