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, their friends and members everywhere 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 Wrexham, Mold and Shropshire.
By joining us, you can enjoy a series of talks held in St Margaret’s Church, Chester Road, Wrexham, on the second Tuesday of the month from October to March. In the past these have included the History of Chester Cathedral; The Restoration of the State Bed at Erddig; Working for the BBC 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, Plas Newydd in North Wales, Quarry Bank Mill and Lyme Park.
In addition, there is a coffee morning held at St Margaret’s Church Hall in the spring, a great favourite with members. Erddig hosts a Summer Evening in late June with a chance to stroll around the gardens followed by an evening meal in the restaurant. There is also an annual Association lunch in October at a local venue and a Christmas lunch at Erddig in December.
The Association also runs a members’ lottery, established in 2006, with a draw four times a year.
Raise money for Erddig
All funds raised through the programme are used to support special projects at Erddig in Wrexham. These can be large or small projects. We helped complete the renovation of the Victorian children’s playhouse and reconstruct the vinery. We also provided two oak benches by the canal, supported the upgrade of the bakery annexe, funded the restoration of the dovecote and its weathervane.
