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.



We anticipate that Heathrow expansion will be our main campaign again this year with the Government delaying a decision on allowing a third runway whilst it examines environmental concerns.  We hope that the hundreds of objections from local residents that we sent to the Government last year helped!

We have been working with a number of other organisations on air quality locally.  We have funded some measurement tubes that will monitor NO2 in Kew.

We have supplied wildflower seeds to London Borough of Richmond to create a wildflower area in High Park Road, Kew and to Strawberry Hill House where they will be planting a wildflower area outside the main gate in Autumn 2016.

We enjoyed visiting the Hive in Kew Gardens during August.

RTFoE is one of the organisations supporting the local 20s Plenty campaign which wants Richmond Council to introduce a default speed limit of 20 miles per hour in all residential roads in the Borough, unless there is a good reason not to.  The campaign now has its own twitter account @20sPlentyLBRich and website at:
