We meet every second month to discuss how we can preserve and enhance the natural habitats of Ham Lands, we organise volunteer work projects and guided walks so we can inform about the area so that more people can understand and appreciate this Local Nature Reserve.
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
To improve habitats for wildlife.
To raise the quality of the whole green space.
To meet and work with other people in your neighbourhood.
There is an issue or concern that needs action.
To work with the Council to improve area, create benefits for all users, engaging the interest for education for both adult and children about nature.
Promote the health benefits of walking in our tranquil area.
Let us know if like to come to the meeting and help out with our projects.
