Geographical remit: 


The Portsmouth and District Centre was founded in 1982 and currently has over 200 members in the area. Our objectives are to promote the National Trust locally and nationally, raise funds in its support, and arrange a programme of events and activities to enrich members’ understanding of its work. Among the National Trust properties we support are Uppark, Hinton Ampner and Mottisfont. The Portsmouth and District Centre is independent of the National Trust and governed by a constitution common to all the charity's Centres and Associations. Our affairs are conducted by a committee of unpaid officers and members who are elected at our annual general meeting held in March each year.


Meetings include talks on a range of heritage and other subjects and allow members to socialise with like-minded people. In summer we arrange day visits and short-break holidays to places of interest. Social and fundraising events throughout the year include walks and coffee mornings. Various of our members also provide volunteer support for the National Trust, for example working as stewards at properties or helping with events.
