Our petition for action on Warmer Homes

Don’t forget to sign and share our local FOE petition calling for help with energy bills, a huge programme of retrofitting and investment in renewable energy.

Ask Alan Mak MP and Flick Drummond MP to take action for warm homes

Friends of the Earth Trees Map

FOE have produced new maps of tree cover across the UK and shown where extra planting could be most effective.

They show that 43% of neighbourhoods have less than 10% tree cover and these are often the most deprived areas in other ways.

Havant Reservoir Petition

We’re also keen to get more names on our petition calling for Southern Water to explore alternatives to putting recycled effluent into Havant Thicket Reservoir.

There are well over 5,000 now but we could do with lots more.
