Baydons Meadow Wildlife Group

The group exists to manage Baydons Meadow, a field beside the river in Chippenham, as a hay meadow.

Over the years we are increasing the numbers of wildflowers and invertebrates, and are gradually reducing the incidence of coarse grasses and other vigorous plants.

We are a small group of volunteers, who would welcome help from anyone with a few hours to spare. We meet on the fist Sunday morning each month. Please see the Volunteering page for details and dates.

TASK MORNINGS - by invitation only

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic our monthly task mornings are limited. We hope to return to the usual meetings very soon: meanwhile take care and stay safe.
