Birmingham Friends of the Earth Newsletter February 2002/March 2002
Two New Groups
In December two new FOE local groups were established, both as it happens in
Worcestershire. Malvern FOE are working on slower speeds and safety issues and
campaigning to establish a cycle route from Malvern to Upton upon Severn. More
is available on website www.malvern-cycleway.org.uk. The group hopes to raise
FOE's profile in and around the town by a variety of methods including electronic
networking, socials and informal campaign-led meetings.
Meanwhile, attending B'ham FOE Monday evening meetings and missing the last train
home, Alistair Waugh and Simon Venables decided that forming a local group in
Redditch might be a better option. A meeting was arranged in the Knowledge Cafe
on December 12th to which 10 people turned up and all expressed an interest in
doing something in the local area- Redditch FOE was up and walking! There have
been a further couple of meetings and issues on the agenda include waste, pollution
and factory watch.
So good luck to both Malvern FOE and Redditch FOE in their campaigns for 2002.
