Sutton and Carshalton Friends of the Earth needs you!

A new local environmental group was launchd in Carshalton in March. Sutton and Carshalton Friends of the Earth will campaign on issues ranging from renewable energy to the third runway at Heathrow. The group meet for the first time on 17th March at the Greyhound pub on Carshalton High St. Ted Burke, the group's founder, said: "We're looking for people who are concerned about these issues to come together and help make a difference.
