Although Havering has plenty of green space, there's always the risk of encroachment by developers, and there are places where air pollution is too high. We aim to increase public awareness of the value of our green spaces, and we monitor development plans so we can campaign against destruction of the green belt. We have regular meetings with the Council and often feature in local press and media. We've produced leaflets on several issues that we distribute when we hold stalls in the area.
We've worked on campaigns such as the Bee Cause, with a particular emphasis on pollinator-friendly gardening and reducing the use of pesticides. We've produced a leaflet with guidance on flowers to plant, and we give talks to local groups about the decline of bees. We push the council for more recycling (especially of plastics), better air quality and protection for school children, less use of pesticides in our parks and streets.
We are a small friendly group, and new members are always welcome to our monthly meetings. We usually meet at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of the month, in Room 9 at Fairkytes, 51 Billet Lane, Hornchurch RM11 1AX- but get in touch through our Facebook page or the contact form below to confirm.
