The Tall Pavilion, built 1702-03, at Westbury Court Gardens Gloucestershire

Cheltenham's National Trust volunteer group - The Active National Trust Squad (ANTS) - is based in the Cheltenham and Gloucester area and has been working at National Trust sites for more than 30 years.

Most of our work takes place at countryside properties and we have recently visited: - Dovers Hill (near Chipping Campden), Littleworth Wood (Snowshill), Haresfield, the Sherborne Estate (near Northleach) and Woodchester Park. We have also worked at Crickley Hill, Newark Park (near Wotton-under-Edge), Westbury Court Garden and Rodborough Common.

Our work days usually take place every third Sunday and we also have a good sprinkling of social events and two open meetings a year for all members to air their views. We produce a regular newsletter giving full details of work days and social events.

All tools are provided; all that you need to bring along are thorn proof gloves, waterproof clothing, good boots and enough food and drink for the day.
