Hello, my name is Mary Mitchell and I joined the National Trust shortly after I moved to the UK in 1986, with my husband and three teenage children. We were delighted when the Dacorum National Trust was started in 1989 and with them we have visited a huge variety of National Trust properties, as well as other interesting places frequently included in our trip itineraries.
We have attended most of the holidays organised by the Dacorum Association , usually in a new area of interest and joining with other members who have similar interests. Hence we have seen a great variety of houses, gardens, woodlands and experienced more unusual items like steam train rides etc. over the 25 years.
We have a variety of overseas visitors so we have been able to share our pleasures and experiences of our visits with them. I have especially enjoyed the friendliness of participants and the keen knowledge of the volunteers at the different places we have visited. Trust places that particularly come to mind are Waddesdon Manor, Kingston Lacy and Biddulph Grange Gardens, but the list is very extensive.
Now that I am not so mobile myself, I recommend the shuttle busses often provided, and the coach drivers on whom we rely. Through our Dacorum National Trust we have been able to donate a generous amount of money to various sites visited or heard of through our monthly talks and excursions.
