Haslemere is extremely fortunate. Not only is it surrounded by some of
South East England's most beautiful countryside, but large areas of its most
spectacular landscapes are owned and managed by the National Trust,
safeguarding their future and ensuring access for everyone forever.

The Black Down & Hindhead Supporters are a group who support
and help the National Trust enhance its local properties.

Through their Committee the Black Down and Hindhead Supporters:

  • Raise funds through subscriptions, donations, events and sales of publications.
  • In agreement with the National Trust, use these funds to pay for improvements which National Trust budgets cannot cover.
  • Meet regularly with the National Trust management to advise on all aspects of management plans, local issues and opinion.
  • Act as the local 'eyes and ears' of the National Trust and help to promote goodwill.
  • Send regular updates to supporters.
  • Organise an annual Open Meeting to report the activities of the previous year.
