You need not be a member of the National Trust to join this local association.
For the past 12 months we have all been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the associations activities have been greatly curtailed, particularly in the summer of 2020. As a result the committee decided that we would not ask for a subscription in September 2020. We have agreed that the subscription due in September 2021 would be set at £8 for the year and not due until January 2022. We will then reassess the situation and hopefully the year starting September 2022 will be normal.
Membership currently stands at 253 and we are pleased to welcome the following new members who have joined since September 2019:
Mrs Lesley Bates, Mrs Ann Beard, Mrs Susan Bubb, Mr Ron Bubb, Mr Cliff Clarke, Ms Isabelle Cornet, Mrs Monica Gardner, Mrs Ita Harris, Mrs Eve Homer, Mrs Linda McLennaghan, Mr David Sharpe, Mrs Christina Shorter, Mr George Shorter, Mr Michael Staunton and Mr Kenneth Worley.
It is with sadness that I have to report the deaths of Mr Leslie Blunt who had been a member for a number of years and of Mr Derrick Caine. Our thoughts are with their families.
Do tell your friends about our Association and invite them to come along to one of our events during the summer. Details of all events are in the newsletter and also on this website. Membership for the 6 months from March 1st is only £7.50.
We would love to have more new members and I’m sure they would enjoy the varied activities and events which our Association provides.

Promoting our Association
Walsall National Trust Association was formed in September 1985 by local members of The National Trust.
The objectives of our Association are to:-
1. Promote the work of the National Trust.
2. Arrange a programme of events for the enjoyment of our members.
3. Raise funds in support of various National Trust properties.
These are achieved through programmes of summer and winter walks, autumn to spring evening and afternoon lectures, car and coach outings, holidays and social events such as coffee mornings and garden openings.
Membership of our Association gives you the opportunity to meet people of similar interests at the above events
By joining our Association, you will be helping to raise funds for various National Trust projects as well as supporting local properties such as Moseley Old Hall, Wightwick Manor, Shugborough Hall and Baddesley Clinton.
