Our outings programme to stately homes and magnificent gardens, including country walks, always prove to be very popular.

Through our fundraising efforts, the Association has been able to support requests in 2016 to the tune of £11,650. We welcome new members and visitors and you can find out more at our Rugby National Trust website for regular updates.
