Welcome to our website.
The objects of the Friends of Combe Valley(FoCV) are:
To promote the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment, including biodiversity.
To advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment
Who are we?
We are a small hard-working unit of volunteers who work towards maintaining the Combe Valley but in particular the Combe Valley Countryside Park for others to benefit from. We have successfully secured funding to allow us to continue this work and to start some really exciting projects working with different aspects of the community.
More information about the whole of the Countryside park is available on the website – combevalleycountrysidepark.com
The friends work in conjunction with Groundwork (who have responsibility for managing the park for the Combe Valley Countryside Park Community Interest Company).
We are always looking for new volunteers with some time to help with these tasks but we also welcome anyone who wants to learn more about Combe Valley. Whatever time you can give is valuable to us.
We are running a number of different activities for all the family which include:-
Guided walks in the Countryside Park
Talks about Combe Valley – its human and natural history
Art Trails and workshops
We are registered as a charitable incorporated organisation with a membership that has no personal liability for debts of the organisation and membership is open to individuals as well as organisations.
A copy of our constitution is available here
Names of trustees and links to copies of annual reports, accounts and minutes of AGMs are available:-
We also work closely with other organisations in the area to improve the Countryside Park. Go to the Combe Valley Countryside Park links for further information.
