Welcome to Green Wedmore

 

Monthly meetings are something we have always been committed to, and from these meetings come our ideas and inspiration. At present, these take place on Zoom, 7.30pm on the last Monday of the Month. Get in touch here to make sure you receive the link.

 

We focus on ACTION and keeping it LOCAL.
