Wrexham Association

Visitors in the garden at Erddig, Clwyd.

Are you interested in making the most of our special places near you? Why not join your local association to enjoy great talks, visits, holidays and other social and fundraising events?

You'll be helping a great cause. Local groups support the work of our charity and raise hundreds of thousands of pounds every year for our conservation and access projects around the country.
 

About the group

 
Our supporters - or members of the National Trust for Scotland - are warmly invited to join the local Wrexham National Trust Association.
 
We're a voluntary organisation of local members, formed in 1976. We support the work of the charity locally, particularly at Erddig, and aim to add to the enjoyment of membership.
 
Members of our association come mainly from the Wrexham, Mold and Buckley areas.
 
By joining us, you can enjoy a series of winter talks held in the lecture theatre of the Glyndwr University in Wrexham, on the second Tuesday of each month. In the past, these have included the history of our local canals, Whixall mosses and fens, surgery in the Peninsular War, and the history of photography and cameras.
 

What we do

 
During the summer, we arrange regular coach trips to places of historic interest. These have included visits to Moseley Old Hall and Sunnycroft in the Midlands, Nantclwyd y Dre and Ruthin Gaol in North Wales, and Southport and Rufford Old Hall in the North West.
 
In addition, we hold an annual association dinner in October. While, in June, it's time for an exclusive summer evening at Erddig Hall. You can wander around the gardens with a glass of wine and enjoy dinner afterwards.
 

Raise money for Erddig

 
All funds raised through the programme are used to support special projects at Erddig in Wrexham. We've donated £113,000 to the cause since 1981.
 
Most recently, we helped complete the renovation of the Victorian children’s playhouse and reconstruct the vinery. We also provided two oak benches by the canal and supported the upgrade of the bakery annexe.
 

Please come and join us

 
If all this sounds interesting, we're delighted to welcome new members - do come and join us.
