We are a volunteer support group who help the National Trust by carrying out practical outdoor conservation work at its properties in the Northumbria region, covering Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham.
We meet once a fortnight on a Sunday at the various properties. Workdays usually start at 10.30 am and go on until about 4.00 pm, depending on the weather, type of work and proximity to teashop.
