Friends of Milton's Cottage

Yet once more O ye Laurels and once more
Ye Myrtles Brown, with Ivy never sere
I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude
Lycidas

The Friends are an independent charity set up as a local network of supporters for Milton Cottage Trust CIO, which runs the Cottage and Museum. Friends’ subscriptions provide funds for the ongoing operation and maintenance of the Cottage and museum. Some of the Friends’ fund-raising initiatives provide money for additional purposes such as refurbishing the building, or expanding the collection. The fund-raising appeal ‘Paradise Maintained’ is for one-off contributions towards the conservation of the fabric of the building. This campaign was begun in the 400th anniversary year and will continue beyond that time. Contributors towards this appeal are listed in The Book of Names, which is kept in the cottage.

By joining the Friends, you will be helping with the ongoing operation and maintenance costs of the cottage and museum. In return, you will be invited to attend special events and receive free entrance to the museum. Additionally, you will be kept up to date with developments via the newsletter.
