The Friends of Mr Straw's House

Who are the Friends of Mr Straw's House?

The Friends of Mr Straw's House are a dedicated group of volunteers who raise much needed funds for Mr Straw's House. The money raised goes to important projects, ranging from conservation work in the house - such as repairing wallpaper, furniture or paintings - to replanting Mr Straw's garden.

All are welcome to support the work of the Friends by becoming a member - see below for more information and an application form.
