The Projects Committee 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 2017, in conjunction with the Day Trips, Holidays and Walks groups, we were able to donate £7,300 to the next “Wish List”; details of this can be seen here, and will also be in a future newsletter.

In previous years this fundraising has paid for outdoor seating at Goddards and children’s trikes and play equipment at Beningbrough, amongst many other items and improvements.

St Edward's Church Extension, Dringhouses

Andrew Thwaite will present his Chocolatier event. Andrew is not charging us for this event, after the mix-up last October, but we are making a small charge to cover the venue and refreshment costs. There will be chocolate samples for you and we do hope you will join us for this afternoon event.

Bring your numbered ticket for the chance to win a box of chocolates.

A Booking Form was enclosed with the March newsletter and is also available using the Booking Form button below.
