SDG15: Life on Land

Shropshire is a beautiful county, and is the largest landlocked county in England! Being surrounded by nature makes us notice when things are going well – and when we see our biodiversity levels changing.

We’re fortunate in Newport many teams who work on keeping our town green: We have a local branch of the Shropshire Wildlife Trust who hold regular talks, the wonderful Newport in Bloom who help keep our town beautiful and the Newport Community Litter pickers who keep it tidy along the Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust who help look after and promote the Canal and reconnect this valuable transport network. The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) also have a Shropshire branch which holds interesting talks and activities over the year.

At a National level we support 2 major events: the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, Plantlifes No Mow May
