You become a Patron of the Trust with its benefits

You become a Patron. You are given all the other rewards, and in addition we will make a wooden book with your name (or it could be in memory of someone else) engraved onto it. This will sit on our bookshelf of Patrons at The Steading. You also receive an invitation to our opening celebration in late summer or autumn. During covid it takes longer than usual to get the books engraved, but they are happening, and our bookshelf is filling up.
