Event - National Trust's leaders in talks (Nottingham)

THE National Trust has announced it will hold its annual general meeting in Nottingham.

There will be talks by chairman Sir Simon Jenkins and deputy chairman Sir Laurie Magnus. The event will also feature displays and a conker competition.

Visitors can also plant an acorn outside the venue, the Royal Concert Hall, which will be grown and then planted in the Peak District.

National Trust attractions in the county include Clumber Park, traditional grocer's home Mr Straw's House in Worksop and the Workhouse in Southwell.

Beccy Speight, Midlands regional director, said: "This is a great opportunity to raise the profile of what an amazing region the Midlands is, and how special Nottinghamshire is.

"Over 79,000 of our members are from this county and this is a chance to say thank you for their support."

The AGM takes place on Saturday, October 29.

It is open to members of the trust, who can register to attend by e-mailing or via their voting papers in the autumn edition of the trust's magazine.
