About Us

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).

When and Where

We meet about four times a year rotating between Romsey, Andover and Stockbridge. Non members are welcome to come to meetings and help with campaigns although we would encourage supporters to become a member if they can - it's only £5.00 + concessions.

  • The next meeting of Test Valley Friends of the Earth will be on 5 May 2018, 10.30am in the Grosvenor Hotel, Stockbridge - all welcome. Exact date to be confirmed - watch this space.

If you haven't been before, we are always keen to welcome new people to help out with stalls and campaigns or simply just coming along for interest. PLEASE DO JOIN US. - you dont have to be a member! - Lifts can be arranged from Romsey and Andover so do contact us if you would like one: [email protected]
