The Penwith National Trust Association meets from September to April at the Marazion Community Centre, usually on the last Monday of each month.

Come along to Penwith National Trust Association and you’ll find an enthusiastic group who love to join together to support the conservation work of the Trust in some of west Cornwall’s most beautiful places.

The benefits of joining

Across the year you’ll have access to a varied programme of special interest talks, field trips and behind the scenes tours, as well as social events.

You can find out more about the work of the National Trust – Europe’s largest conservation charity – meet up with other members, volunteers and staff, and help raise hundreds of pounds a year for special projects.

With refreshments served at each meeting, they’re also a great opportunity to socialise, catch up with old friends or make some new ones.

Where and when to meet

Meetings usually take place on the last Monday of each month at Marazion Community Centre, unless a field trip or social event is taking place elsewhere.

From September to April the start time is 7.30pm, while during July and August it’s 2.30pm.

There’s a small charge to cover the cost of refreshments and the hire of the building.  Guests are welcome too.

Keeping informed

Members of the Penwith Association receive the quarterly newsletter Cornish Oak Leaves which contains our programme, plus the details of meetings and events run by other Associations in Cornwall which Penwith members are welcome to attend.
