Who are the Friends? The Friends of Stanpit Marsh is an association formed in 1983 to help preserve the Marsh for wildlife and people. They have a programme of events such as guided walks, talks and films, social gatherings, litter picks and regular coffee mornings at the Visitor Centre on the marsh.
They raise funds to help finance such things as research and tools; the Visitor Centre interior display; and contribute towards other matters associated with the Marsh. There is a newsletter which goes out to all members at least three times a year.
When necessary, The Friends act as a ‘pressure group' to help protect the Marsh, but mainly they try to assist in keeping a proper balance between the pressures of public use of the area and the environmental needs of the ecology.
If you would like to join this very friendly association, just open this link & print out the application form, fill it out as shown, then send the completed form to our membership secretary. We look forward to seeing you.
