Following the Prime Minister’s announcements about the need for social distancing as part of the coronavirus response efforts, many of the National Trust’s places are closing temporarily. I know you’ll have a lot to think about during these uncertain times but I want to thank you for your continued support and let you know what we can do to support you and your loved ones in return.
The National Trust was founded for the benefit of the entire nation. Our role is to help people and nature to thrive, and we exist because millions of us share the belief that nature, beauty and history are for everyone. We'll try to keep open spaces available as far as possible, including coast and countryside while observing social distancing measures. We know that you and your loved ones are likely to need space and fresh air and we will do all we can to provide this.
And while it might not be possible to visit all our places in person, they are still very much open for business virtually. You can check out our website and our collections online featuring objects and exhibits; download our podcasts and videos, and catch up on what’s new by registering for our newsletters. You can stay in touch with us on social media. We have lots of free content for you to enjoy. Over the coming weeks we will be ramping up our efforts to help people connect with nature, wherever they are. There is so much beauty to behold in the spring, even just from our windows.
As always, I want to thank you for all you do to care for the nature, beauty and history that help unite and sustain us. Your ongoing support for our mission is greatly appreciated. The National Trust wishes you and yours continued safety and good health.
