Richmond Association

Visitors and the south front of Ham House, Surrey.

The Richmond Association for the National Trust was founded in 1977 and has members in and around the Greater London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, spanning both banks of the river.

Our objectives are to publicise and further the aims of the National Trust, to raise funds in its support and to make membership of the Trust more enjoyable and effective through a programme of events and activities. We work closely with both our local properties - Ham House and Garden, and Osterley Park and House. 

The Richmond Association is independent of the National Trust with an agreed constitution. A committee of officers and members who are elected at our Annual General Meeting conducts our affairs.  We welcome new members, and hope that you would wish to support our fund raising efforts in support of the Trust’s projects.

The annual membership rate for the association is: £9 per person -£5 for each additional family member- £6 per person for the retired and over 60. When joining in January, membership runs until March of the following year.  Newsletters are published three times a year with our proposed program of events including details and costs.
 
To join us you must be a member of the National Trust, the National Trust for Scotland or hold a valid National Trust Volunteer Card.  For further information on the Association or our events contact the Programme Manager on 020 8979 3834 or wendyasim@btinternet.com
