North Somerset & Bristol Group

The group is active from Weston Super Mare to Central Bristol, across towards the A38 and down to Junction 22 of the M5. This is not a fixed area, everyone is welcome to join the activities.

Members frequently work with other local groups to co-ordinate conservation, monitoring and socialising.

Regular meetings
Meetings, starting at 7.45 pm, are at the Star Inn at Tickenham, BS21 6SE. Meetings are held from October until the group annual meeting in April.

In summer the group exhibits at local agricultural shows, and church / village/ charity sponsored events or fetes, and arranges walks lead by members of the Trust. The group undertakes habitat management in conjunction with local landowners and contributes work parties for the Trust reserve at Shapwick Moor on the fourth Sunday each month, weather permitting. Current projects include hedge planting, ditch clearance, coppicing and surveying (birds, insects, plants and habitat).

Volunteers meet at the new Shapwick Moor car park at 9.45am and stay as long as they can. Everyone is welcome and anyone with experience of gardening or heavier woodland working is particularly appreciated.
