Friends of Pinn Meadows (FoPM) are a group of local residents whose objective is to secure this area for the public benefit as a place of ecological interest and beauty, including preservation, protection and improvement of the Pinn Meadows.

When: First Saturday of each month at 10.30am.

Where: Meeting point varies between St Martin's Approach, Kings College Road and Elmbridge Drive.

Being regular users of the site FoPM, they are invaluable source of local knowledge and information regarding rare species that are found on the site.

In addition to their hands-on activities, FoPM have worked hard to bring additional Chrysalis Funding (the council's capital funding). Thanks to these funds Pinn Meadows have had several muddy paths resurfaced, a new information board installed; they introduced a hedgehog house, kestrel box, kingfisher box and several bat boxes into the area and have had two additional benches and litter bins installed. They have also worked closely with the Countryside and Conservation Officer and Flood and Water Management Specialist on the drainage project bid.

The group work with council officers on specific maintenance and improvement projects. Most of these have concentrated on wildlife and conservation.

Activities/tasks include:

  • river clearance
  • Himalayan balsam removal
  • litter picking
  • ditch and scrub maintenance
