Please join us for a round-up of Trust news during a year when the wheels kept on turning, but we were unable to share so much with you, our Members, friends and usual visitors.
2020 has been an exceptional year for sharing National Trust of Guernsey properties and places with Islanders. Les Caches Farm has welcomed many families who have enjoyed the buildings and picnic tables in the apple orchard.
The same applies to the Folk and Costume Museum, with a rare tribute to Olivia de Havilland 1916-2020 and an exhibition featuring two garments owned by Miss de Havilland, bequeathed to the Trust.
Remarkable news this year, has been the acquisition of significant land parcels by purchase and bequest. A land area that has been closed for over three decades, together with purchase of additional land in the same area, will soon be accessible for everyone’s enjoyment. We have worked closely with La Sociéte botanical section for analysis on many land areas.
Amongst the above and more, there is a lot of news to share.
As we celebrate our 1960 – 2020 Diamond Anniversary, we cannot promise the party we had hoped for, but we will deliver the news that the National Trust of Guernsey continues to achieve its aim of ‘preserving Guernsey’s heritage for future generations.’
The AGM is open to all. If you are interested in Island heritage and meeting like-minded people, please come along.
AGM papers will be received by Members from Friday 4th September.
Enquiries/apologies should be sent to: Honorary Secretary, Peter Hughes
