Family 'Acts of Kindness' Walk

Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week this half term with us on Cleeve Common. Being kind is scientifically proven to make you happy and so is being outside, so you are bound to feel amazing after this afternoon on the hill.

Join us for a family walk where you can learn all about the small acts of kindness you can easily do to help your local wildlife before making a bird feeder to take home. Hanging it in your garden or a local green space will help birds through the last bit if winter - how kind!

£4 per person. Suitable for children aged 5yrs and over. This is a family event, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Booking essential: to book please email conservators@cleevecommon.org.uk

Meet on the Common outside the front of Cleeve Hill Golf Club

Changing Climate, Changing Cleeve

Grass growing at Christmas? Daffodils in December?! If the grass is growing longer should we graze it longer? In the face of climate change can we help species to adapt?

Join Ellie Phillips, our Conservation Officer, to discuss the challenge.

Visitor Survey

Family Fun on Easter Monday 2016

Family Fun on Easter Monday 2016

We plan to carry out our annual visitor survey on Sunday 22 May.  This helps us understand how many people visit Cleeve Common, why, where they come from and what they like/dislike about the Common.  The information gained is  invaluable in helping us manage the Common in a visitor-friendly way, and can assist in making funding bids.

If you come across one of our volunteer survey helpers, please take a couple of minutes to talk to them - and do ask any questions you may have!
