Cobham Hall Heritage Trust
The Cobham Hall Heritage Trust was set up in July 1985 both to protect the gardens, grounds and garden buildings of the 150 acre Cobham Hall Estate and to educate the public in their historical significance.
The Trust also protects historical artefacts belonging to Cobham Hall.
The Trust provides advice and raises funds to assist with landscape and building restoration projects. Meetings of the Trustees take place three times a year.
The Trustees are:
Mrs Ginny Duncanson (Chair)
Mrs Lynn Ellis
Mr Colin Sykes
Ms Sarah Morgan
Mr Martin Pennell
For those wishing to become involved in Heritage activities, please go to the Friends of Cobham Hall Heritage Trust page.
Hands-On Heritage is a new community heritage project that the Trust is currently developing. We will be applying for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund later this year.
If we are successful, Hands-On Heritage will run from May 2019. It will be a three-year programme that will bring to life the unique history of the Hall and its grounds, for local people, schools and community groups. We will open our doors to new visitors and run activities for local schools. There will be a programme of community archaeology, we'll create a Heritage Room for research and learning, and set up a new volunteer group to help conserve the grounds.

The Trust would be grateful for any support and expressions of interest in the project at this juncture.
