Fri, 26/05/2017 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Join BBOWT and our supporters on Oxford's famous Port Meadow to show how much this wonderful wildflower meadow means to us all. Please join in with this publicity event to show prospective MPs why they should put nature and the environment at the heart of the General Election.

We're gathering from 6pm at the northern end of the Meadow, at Godstow Car Park, and will walk onto the Meadow to form a heart-shaped chain for the photo-session from 7pm.  

See facebook page here or view #BBOWT on Twitter for most up-to-date information.  If you need directions and are lost please call on 07702802088.

Please wear brightly-coloured clothes (or come dressed as your favourite animal, bird, butterfly!) and bring your friends and family along. Well-behaved dogs on leads please. Refreshments will be provided.

The Oxford Meadows, including Port Meadow, are currently protected by EU legislation, but there's no guarantee that will continue after the UK leaves the EU. This could mean that Oxford Meadows would be vulnerable to the impacts of nearby development.

Share your love for nature by joining BBOWT on Friday 26 May to show our prospective MPs for Oxford West & Abingdon, and Oxford East why you believe nature must be at the heart of this General Election, and to raise awareness of the impacts that leaving the EU will have on our local wild places.

Take your own photos and video, and share them on social media #BBOWT

NOTE: there is limited car parking at Godstow Rd, so please use public transport, cycle, or walk across the Meadow from the car park at Walton Well Rd.
