Sayers Croft Trust (Ewhurst)

Conservation Volunteer

Sayers Croft Centre  is on the outskirts of Ewhurst near Cranleigh.  It was used as an evacuation centre during World war Two.

Since 1990 Sayers Croft has been owned and run by Westminster City Council.  Our customers come from school and youth groups across the South East of England, and sometimes even further afield.

The Sayers Croft Trust was established in 1996 to support the work of the Centre and reach out to individuals and groups, who would not otherwise access our facilities, through a community programme. The Trust provides a bursary scheme to allow financially disadvantaged young people to attend the Centre .
