The London & West Middlesex National Trust Volunteers are an environmental conservation group, who perform practical conservation work on National Trust properties at weekends, throughout England and Wales. The group is a voluntary non-profit-making organisation.
Last year (2019) we had a total of 2,864 volunteer hours for the National Trust. The top 10 volunteers provided 43% of the total hours, and the top 20 69%. The top volunteer attended 18 projects and gave up 233 hours of time.
The group, which was founded in 1977, draws its membership primarily from London and the Home Counties, but does have members all over Britain.
We have about 105 members, plus others who join us on events, from a wide range of backgrounds, age groups and skills. Our work parties tend to vary in size between 6 and 18 people.
In 2017 we celebrated our 40th anniversary with a Megabash and Barn Dance. We had over 50 volunteers out at Blackdown in Surrey for one weekend giving just over 400 volunteer hours. In the first 40 years the group has volunteered for over 200,000 hours for the National Trust.
