Supporter Groups  'Getting together with other Trust enthusiasts, members and volunteer card holders 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 Centre or Association is all about. From listening to expert talks and going on behind-the-scenes tours to taking relaxing holidays, you’ll be part of something amazing. Our Centres and Associations promote our work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.'

 

There are four separate Records which give access to the Localities where the NT Supporter Groups are based: a-d; e-k; l-r; s-z.

'Established in 1960, the NVS improves standards of vegetable growing by striving to foster a society that is modern, successful and welcoming to all vegetable growers ... The Society ... is organised into five Regional Branches, each covering its own area of the country. Associated with these Branches are local District Associations, also known as DA's, who hold local meetings, usually monthly, to talk and learn about growing vegetables, swapping seeds, plants & ideas.'

'Founded in 1923 as a natural successor to the Neath Philosophical and Antiquarian Society which had its origins in 1834 ... Meetings are held monthly at 7 pm on the third Monday of each month from September to April ... A guest speaker is arranged for each meeting. The Society organises a visit to a place of historical interest each September and may arrange other visits as appropriate.'

'It all began with a letter from Foyle’s in January 1947 to the Mayor of Newport, Alderman Reg Tyack, suggesting that Newport might like to follow the example of other towns and organise a literary club ... The first dinner and lecture was held at the Westgate Hotel on the 23rd April 1947; we assume that the date was chosen to coincide with Shakespeare’s birthday. The dinners have continued since then and we now meet about six times a year for our dinner/lectures ... We have had a reputation for providing speakers of distinction to talk on subjects of literary or general artistic interest.'
