About Us

When and Where

Our meetings are generally on the 1st Thursday of the month in a pub in either North Finchley or New Barnet.

We meet at 7:30 for a quick chat, and start the meeting at 7:45 PM.
About this Group

This group was launched in August 2006 and originally covered Barnet and Enfield. However, as this is a very large area and most members live in the London borough of Barnet, we decided to rename ourselves Barnet FoE.  New members are welcome.

Our coordinators are Donald Lyven - donaldelyven (at) and 07727 748209 and Cath Paget.

Our membership secretary is Cath Paget - cath_paget (at) Please email Cath directly if you wish to join the group; she can give details of the next meeting.

If you live in Enfield and wish to set up an Enfield Friends of the Earth group, then please contact Friends of the Earth England, Wales and Northern Ireland on [email protected] or 0207 490 1555.
