Our Objectivies

Why do we exist ?

Our founding members had an urge to join with like-minded people in supporting the National Trust whilst at the same time engaging in local history and geography, love of the countryside, and a range of social activities.
We aim to have fun whilst also widening our knowledge of all sorts of fields of human activity. Many long standing friendships have resulted from these activities.

Since our foundation in 1987 we have raised over £170,000 in support of National Trust projects. We have particularly supported our local properties, i.e. Dunster Castle, the Holnicote Estate [including Selworthy village] and Coleridge Cottage at Nether Stowey. We have also made significant donations to national appeals, recent examples including those for Chedworth Roman Villa, Seaton Delaval, Tyntesfield, and Castle Drogo.
