Groups doing well

Friends of the Earth in Middlesbrough & Redcar are doing well, in fact we are looking to start a new Stockton group.  We are all meeting to get it off to a great start at;
Yarm Road Methodist Church, Yarm Road, Stockton  7pm Thursday 28th June
There are lifts available over to Stockton and this would be a great time to get involved as there will be a number of new people.  This year we have been campaigning to have more research done for bees, planted 420 trees, planted a Bee garden and are looking to liaise with councils to have more set aside wildlife/wildflower areas.
