Become a Friend

The Forest of Dean Buildings Preservation Trust (FoDBPT) is in its early years but it already owns three historic properties and all are now under repair and conservation. We need your support to help save important local buildings that would otherwise be lost.  We also need your help to build the Trust into a sustainable organisation, one that persists and succeeds in years ahead.

As a Friend of the FoDBPT you will receive regular newsletters by email, letting you know how our various projects are progressing. We also aim to invite Friends to our sites and other places of interest for occasional organised events. As the Trust grows, we hope to be able to expand our Friends’ activities and, if a Friend wishes to organise a fundraising event to help with our projects, then we would very much welcome this.

There are no membership fees for becoming a Friend, but donations are always welcome. Please complete the Friends’ information form below and/or use the Donation button on this page. A Gift Aid form is also available.

Similarly, if you have special skills which you believe would be useful to the Trust, whether you are a Friend or not, then please let us know.

For all queries, please contact our Friends’ administrator at
