    No-one forced these organisations to include reciprocity as a benefit of paying to be a member!

    I agree. I think the National Trust itself is good value £10.50 a month for a family membership seems very reasonable.

    The fact is, that these places need to be paid for, if you aren't prepared to even pay a tenner to support a nice park, gardens or house that you are enjoying then that is beyond tight.

    No one is stopping you making a voluntary donation if you wish or forcing you to take advantage of any offer/loop holes.

    These places shouldnít make offers if they donít want people to take advantage of them, so no sympathy for a professionally run organsation.

    Personally I use my own judgment and sometimes donate where itís good value/not for profit or they are doing good work.

    It really annoys me that those of us with few NT places near to visit pay the same as those who live down South and have lots.
    Plus the NZ membership we got definitely does not cover parking and we have to pay £5 even for a short stop for a pic-nic.
