The Aylesbury Centre
The Aylesbury Centre is a voluntary association of National Trust members and volunteers, founded in 1974 to promote our work.
We also aim to provide social activities. These include an evening talks programme, outings to Trust places and other destinations, coffee mornings and more.
The 220 or so members live in Aylesbury, across the Aylesbury Vale and beyond.
Some members are room stewards at Claydon. Associated with this, we produced a booklet on Florence Nightingale - aimed at children but also of interest to adults.
We celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2014 with a social evening at Claydon House. Our President, John Bly, takes an active interest in the Centre.
