About this Group

We are a friendly group of people working for the environment and the communities of Test Valley Borough. We campaign for sustainable solutions to environmental issues such as climate change, Fracking, air pollution, the Bee Cause, waste, recycling, transport, housing and nature conservation. Currently the group covers the whole Test Valley Area (including the main towns of Romsey and Andover).
