We are the Friends of the Earth local group covering the London Borough of Richmond.  

We are one of over 200 local  groups affiliated to and supported by Friends of the Earth .  We are a friendly group of volunteers interested in raising public awareness of environmental issues and pressing for sustainability. We are not connected to any political party.

We're always eager to welcome new members. We have a range of activities including discussions, talks, films and talking to the public on stalls.  Members can be involved as much or as little as they like, choosing the campaigns that interest them.

We usually meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm - please check the Events calendar to see what we are doing. 

 


Some members of the group also attend Green Drinks organised by South West London Environment Network on the first Tuesday of each month at the Eel Pie, Church Street, Twickenham.
