The Angus Members’ Centre supporting the National Trust for Scotland is looking ahead to 2014 and its continuing work for the charity.
Throughout the year members promote the interests of the Trust by arranging visits to places of national interest, hold meetings and extend invitations to guest speakers - and they invite more members to come on board.
The centres offer a rare opportunity to learn more about Scottish heritage and support the National Trust for Scotland.
They have been supporting the Trust for over 35 years.
The Angus Centre’s 2014 programme begins on Thursday, January 16, with an afternoon talk on Bannockburn at 2.30 p.m. in the Guide Hall in the Myre.
The programme continues on Thursday, February 13, with a talk at the same time and same venue on ‘Little Houses Improvement Scheme’ by Sian Loftus.
This is followed by a ‘snowdrop afternoon’ at the House of Dun on Tuesday, March 2.
Local members have events planned for the whole of 2014, including a number of fund-raising events.
All money raised goes to supporting Trust projects with some £6,300 being donated by the Angus Members’ Centre up to March, 2013.
These include £2,000 to improve the base camp lodgings at the House of Dun, £250 towards the decoration of the tearoom at Culross Palace and £1,200 for projects at the Grey Mare’s Tail.
Overall the National Trust for Scotland, which is Scotland’s leading conservation charity and is responsible for the care of Scotland’s heritage, received donations from 39 groups topping £94,000 for 2012/13.
