The Friends of Swaines Green
Our main aim is to preserve Swaines Green as a habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna, whilst also ensuring continued access for members of the public. We also work to promote awareness of the site and actively encourage scientific research work on it.
We are an entirely voluntary charity and rely on individuals to both fund and physically carry out the work that is needed. Our most regular activity is the monthly Conservation Day which is held on the 2nd Sunday of each month. This can include anything from clearing pathways to building bridges, cleaning up streams and cutting back scrub.
These are fun events, open to everyone, and involve a lot of socialising, with a plentiful supply of tea and coffee and frequently end with a chat around a bonfire.
We also organise major events for the general public each year. The annual May Fayre attracts between 1,500 and 2,000 people each time and is run as a traditional English Fayre. This includes maypole dancing, folk dancing, traditional crafts, lots of animals and childrens games. It is all held in a beautiful part of the Green, giving it a wonderful rural ambience.
