Tewkesbury & District Friends of the Earth

Tewkesbury & District Friends of the Earth promotes awareness of environmental problems.

We embrace the "think globally, act locally" concept and use it to campaign about issues ranging from soil quality to waste.

We work with other environmental and social action groups in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, and support initiatives which are aligned with our ethical position.

Our campaigns

Our very first campaign was to protect a threatened glow-worm colony. Since then we've worked on soil quality, bees, fracking, waste disposal, renewable energy, recycling, and fish stocks and tree planting.

As well as meeting up, we work alongside others running stalls at local events and supporting eco-awareness initiatives.

Get involved

We love to welcome new people to the group, embracing the knowledge and experience they bring. There's a place for everyone, be it lobbying, responding to consultations, or talking to people about our concerns and the background to them.

We meet approximately twice a month – advertising the dates on our Facebook page. And we also get together at the monthly repair cafes: 2-5pm on the second Saturday of the month at Tewkesbury Baptist Church.
