London and West Middlesex NTV Group

We currently have about 200 members from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups with a variety of skills. Our work parties vary in size between 5 and 20 people, and in a year our group alone completes over 5,000 hours of voluntary work for the National Trust.

What we do

LWMNTV are a fun, different, outdoor way to meet people, learn new skills and keep active on an enjoyable, exciting weekend volunteering for the National Trust. Founded in 1977, our members are mostly from London and the South East, but we do have members throughout the country, from different backgrounds and age groups. Our working parties generally vary in size from between 8 and 15 people. Last year we completed around 4000 hours voluntary work for the National Trust.  
Do you know how to lay a hedge or use a bow saw? These are some of the skills that you can have the opportunity to learn in our outdoor conservation work. National Trust Rangers, and Group members, will show you how to work safely and try new things.  
Most of our tasks take place at weekends (arrive Friday evening and leave early Sunday afternoon) staying in National Trust bunkhouses. We are mainly based within the South East, but also visit other properties all over England and Wales. We also offer day tasks, which are free to attend.
At just £10 for a weekend, we're sure you agree that this is a bargain... This includes accommodation, two cooked breakfasts, two packed lunches, tea break snacks and a substantial Saturday night meal. We are able to cater for special diets with prior warning.   
Our weekends are enjoyable, and are the chance to make new friends. The group has been the start of good friendships, marriages and families. The age range of the group is from 18+. You can enjoy a chat in the evening as you walk to the local pub in the moonlight, or stay in and enjoy the lovely surroundings of the bunkhouse.  So why not come along and join us sometime soon...
