Mendip Hills (Cheddar/Axbridge)
What does the Group do?
We try to ensure that our talks cater for all interests and provide a varied programme covering wildlife and topical conservation issues.
In the summer months we hold monthly outdoor events (except August) at local Trust reserves and other places of natural interest. From September to April on the first Sunday of the month we run a series of walks/visits usually in the Group area, but often further afield.
You can see all our local events in the left-hand column. All are welcome; you don't have to be a member of the Trust.
We try to extend beyond our boundaries and work with other local groups. Our fund raising efforts are concentrated on our annual plant sale run jointly with the Polden Group. In 2013 we raised the magnificent sum of £2,500. Our members also actively support the Mendip Conservation Volunteers in their work on the Trust's Mendip reserves.
