Friends of Camden Meadow, Bath
'Friends of Camden Meadow' was established by local Camden resident, John Long, in 2021 as a spin-off from the Camden Residents' Association, and with the support of Bath & North East Somerset Council and our two local Councillors, Tom Davies and Richard Samuel. It is an open group for local people who would like to be part of the long term management and vision for this little patch of our neighbourhood.
There are various such ‘Friends’ groups linked to parks and open spaces in Bath, the best nearby example being the adjacent and very successful Friends of Hedgemead Park - so there is good precedence and established practice between these groups and the Council.
Being a Friends group confers some rights and responsibilities. The Council recognises us as the established local body with an interest in this site. They work with us as partners, helping to facilitate our long term Vision for the land, and consulting with us before making any decisions which affect it. It also allows us the prospect of extending our activities over time, for instance, perhaps applying for grant funding to support our work.
