Supporter groups in Hampshire
Would you like to find more ways to get involved in your local National Trust places? There are several supporter groups located throughout Hampshire, and their members have access to a range of benefits including special interest talks, volunteering opportunities, fun social events and organised day trips to properties around the country. Read on to find your nearest group or click on a Supporter Group’s name in the menu to jump to their details.
Why join a supporter group?
Getting together with other National Trust enthusiasts, members and volunteers who feel passionate about the same things is priceless. Sharing unique experiences and finding out more about the places you care about is what being part of a local National Trust supporter group is all about.
From listening to expert talks and going on behind-the-scenes tours to taking relaxing holidays or restoring natural habitats in the great outdoors, you’ll be part of something amazing. Supporter groups promote and assist the National Trust’s work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.
Friends of Ludshott and Passfield Commons
Volunteers are welcome and carry out a variety of important tasks, including cutting and clearing scrub, surveying wildlife and plant and helping in the office.
An annual membership fee of £5 goes towards supporting the upkeep of Ludshott and several, lesser-known adjoining areas of heath, wood pasture, ancient woodland and the beauty spot at Waggoners Wells.
North Hampshire Centre
The North Hampshire Centre was founded in 1985 and current membership numbers are approaching 300. Its aim is to encourage membership of the National Trust, to arrange a programme of events for the enjoyment of our members and to raise funds for the Trust's local and national appeals.
Portsmouth and District Centre
The Portsmouth and District Centre was founded in 1982. Its objectives are to promote the National Trust locally and nationally, raise funds in its support and arrange a programme of events and activities to make membership of the National Trust more enjoyable. Among the properties the Centre supports are Uppark, Hinton Ampner and Mottisfont.
South Hampshire National Trust Volunteers Group
There is probably one interest common to all those in the South Hampshire NTV group, and that's a love of the countryside. Members come from all walks of life and the present age range is from 10 to 80+.
The Winchester Association of National Trust Members particularly supports the National Trust locations in and around Winchester: the Winchester City Mill, Mottisfont Abbey, and Hinton Ampner.
