Abergavenny & Crickhowell Friends of the Earth is an environmental campaign group taking action on a range of local and national issues including climate change, renewable energy, single-use plastic, pollinators and roadside verge and hedge cutting. Have a look at the campaigns section below to find out what we've been up to recently.
Members of our group have been involved recently in campaigning on bee-friendly planting on council-managed land, getting supermarkets and local traders to ditch single-use plastics and getting our local Assembly Members to ban fracking in Wales.
A few members are planning to persuade the County Council to change its roadside verge-cutting routines and to stop spraying with glyphosate weed killer. A number of members are also active members of Extinction Rebellion and have supported some of its actions both locally and in Cardiff.
We meet quarterly, on the third Monday of January, April, July and October at 7.30 pm in the Kings Arms, St. John’s Square, Abergavenny. We work with other voluntary groups in the area and are always looking for new people to be involved.
