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 been about

Bonfire night at Lewes
A history of garden tools
Whatever happened to Christopher Robin? A happy child or not
A career as a fingerprint expert with the Net
History of the Blue Cross Animal Charity
Victoria Palace Theatre 

We had a very successful outing to Bletchley Park in September 2018 and we always have a Christmas Lunch for members.  In 2017 we had a short holiday in Sidmouth.
