2017 - 2018

The Projects Group organises Social events for the enjoyment of members, with any profits made from these activities going to the National Trust “Wish List”.  


This is an annual list, produced by local National Trust properties, of small items or projects that would help to improve their visitor experience. In previous years this fund raising has paid for outdoor seating at Goddards and children’s trikes and play equipment at Beningbrough, amongst many other items and improvements.


In 2016, in conjunction with the Day Trips, Holidays and Walks groups, we have been able to donate £6,500 to the next “Wish List”; details of this can be seen here, and will also be in a future newsletter.  

Details of the 2015 donation can be seen here.


The Projects Group committee has put together the following programme of Social Events for your enjoyment:


Up Arrow FB-FindUsonFacebook-online-114

The Summer Garden Party will be held on Monday 25th June at Beningbrough Hall gardens at 2.30pm.

£9 per person for the Grden Party.   £10 per person for the Coach.


We will have sole use of the gardens and have arranged for the Head Gardener to talk to us and guide us around the gardens. The gardens are being redeveloped and in June we will be able to see them at their best.

A delicious picnic tea will be provided in the gardens, if fine, or in the restaurant if wet.

A coach will be available to and from York.

St. Crux and future events

As St Crux is undergoing repairs to the fabric until the autumn we will not be holding the usual Summer Fair. However we have a number of autumn events planned including a session with Chocolatier: Andrew Thwaite, who provides chocolate samples to his audience, and a further Film Archive show.

More details will be available in the June newsletter.


We do hope to see many of you at future events.
