Newsletters and Publications

Margate 1803

We publish a newsletter once a year, in the Autumn. In addition, we send out regular updates by email to all members who have provided us with an email address. These are designed to keep members informed about forthcoming events and other news. If you are not receiving these updates please contact us to provide your email address.

We will endeavour to publish articles on a range of subjects, including more relating to garden history and conservation. If anyone wishes to write an article, please contact us.

We will also have a book review page, where we will review books on subjects relevant to the Trust's work. Again, if any of you are interested in writing a review, or want to suggest a book for review please contact us.

We intend the newsletter to remain a valuable vehicle for communicating to all of you. We will continue to provide the newsletter in paper format for those who prefer it. Nevertheless, we very much hope that you will enjoy visiting our website, and newsletters past and present are available to read and download.
