Galmpton Wildlife Corridor project

A number of people have already come forward to register their interest in the Galmpton Wildlife Corridor project, which aims to work together to create wildlife corridors interconnecting throughout Galmpton village, to encourage the movement of all local wildlife.

We are still looking for more people to get involved in the project, please contact us here if you are interested or have any questions.

Great British September Clean 11-27 September

Gary was reminded of the national Keep Britain Tidy event last week whilst watching a young family on Thurlestone. Instead of the usual family beach activities, the children were hunting for rubbish in the sand and seaweed and eagerly returning to their parents who had the rubbish bags.

If anyone is thinking of organising an event locally, let us know! We can support you with posters, handouts and use of our social media to spread the word, simply contact us here or phone 01803 842148.

Galmpton Wildlife Corridor

The Galmpton Wildlife Corridor project is a group of like-minded people in the community working together to create wildlife corridors interconnecting throughout the village, to encourage movement of all local wildlife.

Would you or anyone you know be interested in getting involved and hearing more about the project? Pop in and speak to Gary or Kay, phone 01803 842148 or email
