Newton Abbot Association

The Newton Abbot Association was started in 1983 and has a very active membership of almost 300 members.

What we do

We are a 'Supporters Club' for the National Trust, providing social events to enhance National Trust Membership, and to raise funds for the Trust, which we can put to chosen projects.
Because some of our members serve as local volunteers, we see Castle Drogo and Bradley Manor as being on our home patch.

Joining up

We expect to recruit from Newton Abbot itself, Bovey Tracey and the surrounding towns or villages such as Ipplepen, Ashburton and Kingsteignton covering the 'Costa Geriatrica' between Torquay and Dartmoor.
We are proud to be regarded as an exceptionally friendly bunch, just ask any of our recent jmembers.
Our Constitution is a negotiated variant of the standard National Trust model, and the Association is run by a committee of eight or so members, chosen at the AGM.

Social events

We organise a full and varied programme of events throughout the year including day trips, holidays, talks and social events.
