Mid Kent Centre

Visitors enjoying a welcome talk

The Mid Kent Centre was founded in 1979 to promote and prosper the work of the National Trust. Members live in Maidstone, the Medway Towns and surrounding areas.

Sadly the group is due to close in June this year.  During the past 39 years it has given local National Trust members the opportunity to socialise with people with similar interests.  It has provided hundreds of informative talks and visits to interesting properties plus social events and, whilst doing so, has raised and donated more than £55,000 since 1987 for conservation projects.

The Centre's monthly Talks will continue until June.

In April there will be a self-drive visit to Penshurst Place and in May a coach trip to Standen House including a visit to the nearby Priest's house.

A final meeting will be held in September to consider the accounts for the previous year and officially dissolve the association.

The National Trust would like to thank the Mid Kent Centre members for their generous donations and continuing support and also special thanks to their committee members without whose hard work the group would not have been able to function.  We know their donations are the result of a lot of hard work on the part of their Committee and the generosity of their members.  Without the assistance of our Centres and Associations the Trust would not be able to undertake many of the projects our members’ groups choose to support.

Hopefully their members will continue to support us by joining other local groups, whose contact details can be found on: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/lists/supporter-groups-in-kent .   Alternatively please call the supporter groups’ Business Support Team on  01932 339496 or email supportergroupsLSE@nationaltrust.org.uk for further information.
