About Us

When and Where

We take local action both on Friends of the Earth's national campaigns and on local sustainable development issues. Through these activities we seek to influence the actions of Croydon politicians, local government and local people.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday each month, at East Croydon URC. If you are interested you would be very welcome to come along! To find out more here.

Get in touch to talk about how you can get involved.
