At the end of September, South Staffordshire Council hosted a Friends’ Groups meeting, bringing together voluntary environmental and community groups from the South Staffordshire Council district. The event provided an opportunity for the Friends Groups to share their successes, network and support one another.
Graham Peak from Staffordshire Wildlife Trust provided an interesting overview of the concept associated with Friends groups.
There were presentations by both the Friends of Wom Brook and the Friends of Essington.
Our thanks go to Howard Medlicott (Landscape Manager, South Staffordshire Council), Clodagh Peterson (South Staffordshire Council, Policy & Partnerships) and colleagues from South Staffordshire Council for their hospitality.
