The Golden Cap Association (West Dorset) was founded in 1978 and has over 400 members. We support the work of the National Trust locally and offer activities such as talks; walks; coach visits; quizzes; lunches etc to make National Trust membership even more enjoyable. Membership is open to National Trust members and accredited volunteers.
In view of the current situation with the coronavirus outbreak the Golden Cap Association Committee has decided, albeit very reluctantly, to cancel or postpone all events scheduled until the government informs us that it is safe for them to resume.
The Golden Cap
We take our name from the highest cliff on the South Coast of England – The Golden Cap – which is of outstanding ecological and geological importance because of its size and diversity and is part of the Jurassic Coast.
An Independent Association
We are independent of the National Trust but governed by a constitution common to all the charity’s Centres and Associations. Our affairs are conducted by a committee elected at our Annual General Meeting held every March.
We are always pleased to welcome new members in particular those living within the geographical area of Beaminster, Bridport, Burton Bradstock, Lyme Regis and their environs but members are welcome from further afield. We are also eager to recruit people prepared to help with the organisation of our programme on either a regular or an ad-hoc basis.
