Chasewater Friends

Thu 10 Jan 2019

A new Burntwood-based charity has been set up to promote Chasewater.

The Chasewater Friends group will launch at the Oak Room at the Innovation Centre at 11am on 19th January.

The event will feature a presentation by head ranger Rob Davies and the group has been supported by county councillors Helen Fisher and Sue Woodward.

People can become a friend of Chasewater for £2 a year of £5 for three years. Organisations can also sign up for £10 a year.

Chasewater’s Development Manager, Jane Lees, said: “Chasewater is such an asset for this area and has great potential so we’re encouraging volunteers to join Chasewater Friends and help us fulfil our aims.

“Members can get involved in plans for the future, learn more about it and make a real contribution, however small.”

The charity’s mission is to be:

for the benefit of the inhabitants of the areas surrounding Chasewater, to provide or assist in the provision of facilities for recreation and other leisure time occupation in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving their conditions of life for the inhabitants of the area of benefit in particular but not exclusively by the preservation, promotion, support, assistance, and improvement of Chasewater and to educate the public and all who visit Chasewater about the need to respect Chasewater’s special environment and status.
