Flood Meadows

The Flood Meadows Volunteer Group known as “Friends of Flood Meadows”

There is a close working relationship between the Alton Society and the Alton Town Council concerning the Flood Meadows which they own. The result of this partnership has been to deliver and maintain an outstanding recreational facility whilst preserving the natural aspects of grass/woodland and the (now disused) water cress beds. It is the aim of the Alton Society to maintain the balance of recreational and semi natural woodland, grassland and riverside nature of Flood Meadows (a piece of the countryside in the town).

Conservation work in the area is conducted by a loyal band of volunteers who meet on the third Sunday of each month at the end of Tanhouse Lane at 10 am for a 2 hour session of conservation. This is followed by refreshments.

Anyone interested in attending can just turn up on the day or contact Martin Gibbs (the coordinator) on 01420 86449. Check out our Facebook page for details and postings. Bring gloves and wellies.
