Herita wants to grow into a National Trust for Flanders. The oldest and most famous example of the National Trust is the British one. The aim is to preserve and open up places of historical interest or natural beauty. The British organization relies mainly on members, donations and volunteers.
Herita now wants to expand her membership. The membership card provides access to all historical sites and natural areas managed by institutions affiliated with the Organization of National Trusts International. So members can visit more than a thousand locations with the card in Holland, Germany, UK, Australia, Canada, etc. Membership costs 35 euros per year.
“The members’ movement will help Herita do important work to preserve the irreplaceable heritage sites of Flanders and strengthen our advocacy for the historic sites,” said Herita Director Matthias Francken. “This way we take care of our immovable heritage together.”
In Flanders, Herita manages several monuments, including Herz Castle in Limburg, which is in the process of complete restoration, as well as Hofkamer in Antwerp, where the foundation is headquartered. In West Flanders, Herita operates Beauvoorde Castle in Wulveringem, where the Letterenfestival will soon be taking place. At Flemish Brabant, Herita members can visit Horst Castle, among other things.
