About Us

When and Where

We usually meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month in Cockermouth at 7.30pm. We are always delighted to welcome new members, but please email first in case we have to cancel a meeting for any reason so you don't make a wasted journey.

 
Our main current campaign is to protect and encourage bees. We are trying to reduce local availability of neonicotinoids (implicated in the decline of bee numbers) in local Garden Centres. 

You can also follow us on facebook and twitter.

About this Group

We campaign on a range of green issues. Our location in West Cumbria means we do a lot of work on nuclear waste (we have most of the UK's waste here at the Sellafield site) and renewables. We have a website dedicated to ideas and policies - both local and global - about how Cumbria could flourish without reliance on new nuclear power.

Visit it at  http://www.cumbrianenergyrevolution.org.uk/   -- it's regularly updated and you'll find a host of great initiatives there.
