The Boston Spa, Wetherby & Villages Green Group was set up with three objectives:

  1. To reduce our carbon emissions
  2. To increase biodiversity
  3. To reduce waste and increase recycling in our communities

Our aim is to help the environment in our local area, but hopefully other areas can benefit from some of our ideas.

We have so far set up 3 community action groups to focus on specific areas, namely:

  • Protecting and increasing Tree Cover, and creating Wildlife Corridors
  • Making Cycling safer
  • Reducing Waste and increasing Recycling

See tabs above for each group's pages and blogs/news.

We also have four developing projects:

  • Creating a clean river environment
  • A community repair shop/café
  • Net zero carbon and energy efficiency
  • Young Peoples' Green Group

What we've been doing over the last 5 years

Helping people save energy and money.  Supporting Yorkshire businesses and creating local green jobs.

✓ Planted over 400 trees in our local community.

✓ Fixed and donated over 600 bikes as part of our Big Bike Fix.

Recycled over 250,000 crisp packets as well as used pens, and toothpaste tubes and brushes.

Supporting 6 local primary school eco initiatives and education.

✓ Started our Plastic Free Community journey.

Every week, we are getting new members joining us who would like to get involved in some aspect of protecting our local environment, reducing our carbon waste, increasing biodiversity or reducing waste. We now have over 250 members and growing!
