Alnwick Area Friends of the Earth is a local group of the international Friends of the Earth movement. We are based in Alnwick, North Northumberland, but we welcome members from across our area. We campaign locally on a variety of environmental issues, from climate change to habitat loss, and we work with local partners to help create a cleaner, greener Northumberland.
Who We Are
We are a group of ordinary local people from all walks of life who care about the environment, locally and globally. Most of us live in Alnwick or the surrounding villages, but some live further afield in North Northumberland. We have a revolving chair, but the main contacts are currently:
What We Do
We have been involved in many environmental campaigns and projects in the local area, from helping with the Bullfield Community Orchard, to tree planting in schools, to working to stop opencast coal at Druridge Bay. We regularly participate in local events such as the Alnwick Food Festival and over the years we have organised our very popular Environmental Question Time with local politicians.
We are a friendly local group and all are welcome to our meetings. We meet on the evening of the first Wednesday of every month at a venue in Alnwick, or online while social distancing is in force. To find information about our next meeting, you can:
