ANGUS MEMBERS' CENTRE
( Charity Number SC 024891 )

Barries's Birthplace

House of Dun

Barry Mill

The Angus Members' Centre is run by members for members. We are a local group of like minded people who come together to share interests and support the National Trust for Scotland. We organise assorted activities throughout the year. Some, such as talks and visits to Trust properties or other venues, are more social occasions for us to meet and find out more about the Trust in Scotland and some, such as coffee mornings, concerts, and plant sales, raise funds for the Trust. We have supported a number of different projects over the past years.

All afternoon talks are held in the Guide Hall, Myre car park, Forfar at 2.30pm. Talks are open to everyone, not just members. The admission charge of £4 includes light refreshments after the meeting.

Aims of the Angus Members' Centre :-

  1. To act as a local Committee to promote interest in, and support for, The National Trust for Scotland throughout Angus.
  2. To enrol new members and raise funds for The National Trust for Scotland.
  3. To encourage participation in the work of The National Trust for Scotland.

We send out a comprehensive Newsletter four times a year keeping members informed about the Centre’s activities and other matters of interest. A programme of the events organised by the Members' Centre is published annually and is automatically sent to all our members (see below for current programme).

The Angus Members' Centre is open to all members of The National Trust for Scotland (and the National Trust), however there is a small annual membership subscription to cover administration costs (this is currently £6 per person/£10 per couple).

If you are not already a member of the Angus Members' Centre, please consider joining. Our fund raising events are open to everyone and we would be delighted to meet you and your friends.
