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.

Our Centre is a friendly social group with membership open to all members of the National Trust and National Trust volunteers. Our objectives are to provide interesting and enjoyable activities and events for our members whilst raising funds for the support of the National Trust.
 
Membership fees are £4 per annum for individual members or £7 for two members at the same address, running from 1st September to 31s t  August and we organise outings, talks, holidays and an annual Christmas lunch at Sissinghurst.
 
We have monthly talks  on a variety of subjects at Church Farm Hall,    New Hythe Lane, Larkfield on the second Thursday of each month, evenings April to September 7 30 for 8 00 pm and afternoons October to March 2 00 for 2 30 pm. Entrance to each talk is only £4
 
In the Summer months we run coach outings, which are very popular with our members. Whilst National Trust properties are included, visits are made to numerous other places of interest.
 
As a member you will receive full details of our programme through our twice yearly Newsletter, which also includes reports of the previous events and articles of general interest.
