The costs of maintaining Smallhythe Place cannot be met by the income from visitors alone. The National Trust has launched a campaign titled 'A Search for Angels' to raise funds. All gifts are appreciated, but donors making a contribution of £100 are recognized as Ellen Terry 'Angels' and will receive a commemorative certificate. For further information on the appeal, contact Margaret Weare, The National Trust, Smallhythe Place, Tenterden, Kent, TN30 7NG. Tel: 01580 762334.

A new colourfully illustrated guidebook, 'Ellen Terry and Smallhythe Place', especially commissioned for the anniversary year, is available for £2.50 from Smallhythe Place or can be obtained by mail order from the property for £4 which includes post and package. Cheques in British sterling should be made payable to The National Trust.
