We provide monthly talks, from autumn through to spring. Some talks are National Trust related but we cover a wide range of other topics. There is an entry fee of £2 per person to include refreshments. Teas and coffees and biscuits are served after the talks, giving a chance for members and guests to meet and chat.
Summer Day Trips
In the summer we organise day trips, to National Trust and other locations which members will find attractive and interesting. Pembrokeshire’s remoteness limits the number of locations which are readily accessible but we try to ensure the trips do not involve too many hours sitting in a coach. Coach trips are a great way to get to know other people.
Some walks are at National Trust properties in the County and are led by Trust staff who work at the site. We are able to appreciate the sites and have explained the work being carried out there. Some walks will be at other places of interest, led by non NT staff.
Each year we arrange a short holiday which visits National Trust properties but also other places of interest. In recent years our Tours have been to Dorset, the Lake District, Yorkshire, Northumberland, North Wales, Devon and Cornwall, Kent, East Anglia and Northern Ireland. The Tour is the highlight of our year and is always well supported.
Some years we hold a themed Lunch. It usually relates to a Pembrokeshire related anniversary and we have a guest speaker well versed on the theme.
Donations to the National Trust in Pembrokeshire
Apart from the pleasure of our events programme, it enables us to raise funds and make and annual donation to the National Trust in Pembrokeshire. These have totalled over £30,000 since our formation in 1998. Each year we tell the Trust how much we can give and they provide a list of possible uses. Over the years we have helped the Trust in a wide variety of ways providing much needed equipment or plants for many properties.
We distribute Newsletters in Spring and Autumn. The main contents are:
* PNTA news
* Reports on our past Programme events
* Details of our Programme for the following 6 months
* News updates from the local National Trust properties
* Details of forthcoming events at the National Trust properties.
