Our National Trust membership pack has finally arrived. National trust is a charity that works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces. They charge an entrance fee to be able to access the beautiful properties but individuals or families can also avail of an annual pass which would allow the pass holder unlimited admission to the Trust properties.
The membership pack came in a beautiful envelope which was decorated by photos of some of their properties. Enclosed is everything that you need, the National Trust handbook which contains all the details of all their properties, membership cards, Map guide, copy of the latest magazine (you will receive 3 editions per year), car park sticker and a free gift, we received the binoculars.
We decided to become a member after hearing from our friends as well as my partner at work that it is well worth it. There is a lovely garden not far from here that we could frequent as well as some of the hundreds of other places that we could choose to visit throughout the year. We feel that it's important that Poj learn at an early age how to appreciate nature as well as the importance of the preservation of historic places. Now that our membership cards are here, all we're waiting for are good weekends to be able to use it. =)
It was a lot warmer today and it didn't rain & how we wish that today was the weekend =( Today would have been a good day to try it out... Nevermind, Poj and I still went out for a good walk. But now, Roll on summer!
