New Forest Friends of the Earth is active on air pollution, local planning issues, single-use plastics, #DrasticOnPlastic, the People’s Manifesto for Wildlife, renewables, pollinator meadows, and much more.
Every year we plant out a number of local sites with pollinator-friendly flowers. We campaign on air pollution and single-use plastics, and we’ve also involved local schools in practical ways such as beach plastic surveys. We’re particularly proud of our schoolchildren’s Postcards to Paris (2015) and Wipe Out Single-Use Plastics in the New Forest (2018) competitions. We also promote environmental films and talks by specialist speakers. Our main event of the year is the New Forest Show, when for three days in July we share and talk about what we’ve been doing.
If, like us, you’re passionate about the future of our fragile world, do come along and join us. We meet up regularly, sometimes in people’s homes and sometimes at a local pub. Everyone is welcome, and you can become involved as much or as little as you’re able. Get in touch with us on our Facebook page to find out more or send us a message through the contact form below.
