It’s nonsense to suggest the National Trust is downplaying the significance of Easter.
Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is clear to see that within our communications and marketing we clearly state the word Easter and include it in a number of promotional materials, including our website, where we do also promote our partnership with National Trust at this seasonal time of year.
We invite people from all faiths and none to enjoy our seasonal treats, which can be found around Easter time.
