Berwick Upon Tweed

Environmental Group

Group leaders Raine Bryant and Hilary O'Shea

Logo Do you care about the natural environment and want to make a difference through positive action? Our group started out with an emphasis on cleaning up rubbish, particularly along the Tweed and local beaches, to help protect vulnerable wildlife.

However, over the past year we have broadened our scope and concentrated on creating a Tweed & Coast Nature Trail following the river from Coronation Park to Spittal and the cliffs at the far end of the promenade. It features beautiful blue butterfly information boards expertly designed by Raine and is now (as of 22nd March 2020) open !. The group will maintain and update the boards season by season. The presentation given at the Open Meeting on 2nd March is available to download using the link on this page. There is also a link here to the trail's own website, where you'll find full details of the route, accessibility, facilities and signage.

We are also interested in tree planting, sustainability and visits to local sites (e.g. for butterfly counts). Any other ideas are welcome. We expect members to participate in physical activity and undertake research which fulfils our aims.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 2.30 pm, venues to be announced by email.

If you would like to be involved by helping to run the group or attend events, please email Raine and Hilary using the link on this page.
