Dacorum Association

Autumnal woodland on the Ashridge Estate, Hertfordshire, in November.

The Dacorum National Trust Association was formed in 1989 to promote the National Trust’s objectives in this part of south-west Hertfordshire.

Most of the the Dacorum Association's members live or close to the towns of  Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead and Tring.  Our subscription for 2016-17 is £10.00 for the first member and £6.00 for each additional member living at the same address.  Our membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March with subscriptions payable in April.  New members are welcome to join at any time.
Our meetings are held at Berkhamsted Civic Centre, St John’s Church Hall, Boxmoor (Hemel Hempstead) and Potten End Village Hall.  The location of each meeting is indicated in the calendar of events below. Evening meetings start promptly at 8:00 pm and afternoon meetings at 2:30 pm.  A small admission fee is charged to help cover the costs of speakers, hall hire and refreshments.  Members are welcome to bring guests to any of our meetings.
We use coach transport for our visits to National Trust and other sites of interest.  For members’ convenience the coach stops at several pick-up and drop-off points in our area.  The trip destinations and prices are announced in our newsletter and members have priority for booking coach seats. Guests may be accommodated if a trip is not fully booked by members.        
The newsletter is published quarterly.  In addition to activity reports and articles of general interest, it also provides details of forthcoming trips, meetings and pub lunches and tells you who to contact when it is necessary to confirm your participation
