About The Friends of Foots Cray Meadows

The Friends of Foots Cray Meadows were formed in 2006 by local people recognising the importance of protecting the biodiversity features of Foots Cray Meadows. Our Aims and Objectives are:

  • To Protect wildlife and its habitat within Foots Cray Meadows
  • To provide a focus for involvement by the community and users in the open space to volunteer and work with the council, in the conservation of Foots Cray Meadows and its development as a public open space
  • Advance the public's awareness of the open space by promoting Foots Cray Meadows, its plants, wildlife, landscape, sustainability and supporting appropriate recreational facilities for the benefit of community groups and the general public
  • Develop and deliver information, interpretive material and educational opportunities for Foots Cray Meadows;
