 Welcome to the new

Friends of Bunbury Village website.

Can You Help?

The Bunbury Village Day committee needs some new members to volunteer. Organizing the Day in June each year requires a bit of time but you can choose how much and what you would like to contribute. Some offer their time on the day to help with the bar, tickets or on the BBQ, some come on the previous day to help us layout the field and put up tents and move furniture. Others are able to take on responsibility for the longer term organisation of the day, contacting local groups who participate, booking events and equipment.  We have several experienced members who can support and advise new supporters.

The AGM is this Tuesday at the Nags Head at 7:30.

Come and find out more no commitment at this stage. If you can’t come but would like more information contact me at friendsofbunbury@gmail.com

 

The Peoples manifesto for Wildlife:

 

Today you will find a new manifesto for wildlife produced by Chris Packham the well-known environmental commentator and campaigner. Use the link in the side panel. It is a very important comment on the state of our natural environment and what we need to do to turn around the catastrophic collapse of our wildlife. Please take a look. The version on the website is the one without all the great graphics and illustrations but does include all the references. A link to Chris’s own website is provided  where you can read more.

We have destroyed:

  • 97% of our flower rich meadows
  • 86% of Corn Buntings
  • 97% of our hedgehogs
And that is just the start of the list ….

 

 

Who are we?

This is a new site and is still being developed. It has its origin in the Lower Bunbury Action Group and the struggle to protect the village from unnecessary and unwanted speculative development. From the start the organization has always been interested in the whole life of the village and the ways in which we can support and promote its  well-being. This website is hopefully one way that process can be encouraged. By providing a way to share ideas and information about the village in a more interactive way we can become more engaged and even possibly help to make better choices about the way we want the village to grow. The emails we circulated in the past were a start. Now we need a method of talking to one-another that enables everyone to join in. How? Two ways:

Would you like to comment on something you have read? You will find a comment box under each post. Fill in some basic information and the little code (so we know you are real and not a machine!) Comments remain open for 30 days after being published. If you need more help with this click here

Perhaps you have something to say? Make a  contribution  to the website as a one-off or a regular contributor. We would welcome your comments on all sorts of topics that link to the village.

The website is a companion to the village information website bunburyvillage.info

Here, we seek constructive discussion about all aspects of the village. If you are a friend of the village then you are welcome. Of course being a friend does not mean we all share the same views as one another.  What we hope unites us is the common objective to find the best ways to promote the life of our village.
