The Friends of Abbey Fields
Membership Secretary: Pat Smith
Abbey Fields, Kenilworth has been highly valued throughout history and it is important that we play our part in ensuring the Abbey Fields are there for future generations to enjoy, as past generations have done for us.
It was partly to try to enhance the Fields as a habitat for wildlife that led to the formation of Friends of Abbey Fields about four years ago. Our aims included trying to ensure the environment is not degraded by litter, vandalism or inappropriate use; to enhance the Fields as a habitat for wildlife; to raise public awareness about the historic, aesthetic, wildlife and amenity value of Abbey Fields, and to encourage the public to participate in its protection for future generations. We currently have a committee of eight people and nearly 150 members, many of whom take part in some of our activities and all of whom receive a quarterly newsletter. These activities have included litter-picking, fund-raising, bird-watching, bat-watching, and even a moth-evening. We work closely with Warwick District Council and many of our activities take place in conjunction with them.
