Supporter groups in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire
Make the most of your National Trust membership in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire by joining a local supporter’s group, to enjoy a series of members events and support the vital work of the Trust. There are three groups you could join in the region. 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.
The Grantham Association
This Lincolnshire-based association raises funds for the benefit of local places, while widening the benefits of their involvement with the National Trust.
Activities like day trips, short breaks, alongside the annual lunch and coffee morning, has made it possible for the group to donate between £2,000 and £3,000 each year to the Trust.
If you can travel to Grantham and have National Trust membership or volunteer status why not consider joining the Grantham Association?
The North Notts Association
The North Notts Association provides talks and visits and supports our local properties. Membership is open to members of the National Trust, volunteers and staff.
The association hold regular monthly meetings on the second or third Wednesday at The Crossing Church & Centre, Newcastle Street, Worksop, S80 2AT where they enjoy talks on a wide range of subjects including misericords, historical buildings and poets to historic figures.
