Sevenoaks Area National Trust Association (SANTA)

The west front of Knole, Kent

Our association was founded in 1982 and provides local National Trust members with stimulating talks, visits and short UK holidays.

In past years SANTA donations have been made to Knole, Quebec House, Chartwell, Scotney and Ightham Mote.

Recent talks have ranged widely:

  • Flowers of Kent
  • Chelsea Physic Garden
  • Polesden Lacey and Mrs Ronald Greville
  • Tonbridge - the Growth of a Market Town
  • Women and the Home Front in WW1
  • Unusual Kentish Buildings

Visits recently were organised to Batemans, Broadstairs, Michelham Priory and Alfriston Clergy House, in addition to the many places visited during a short holiday to Derbyshire.
