Cottingham Friends of Green Spaces (FRoGS) was established in 2021, taking forward the work
that had gone into the environmental chapter of the Neighbourhood Plan to promote learning about our
village’s green spaces and undertake practical activities to preserve, safeguard and improve them.
With a growing membership of volunteers, FRoGs have got involved with a range of activities including cataloguing and researching the village’s green spaces, learning about the species of plants and trees that flourish best in this area, planning and implementing projects to clear and plant, and liaising with similar environmentally active groups in the region.
FRoGs are also working with children at Cottingham CofE Primary School on the school’s allotment and garden and it’s hoped that, in due course, the junior group, ‘Tadpoles’ can become involved in more projects around the village, particularly in developing areas for pollinating insects and corridors for wildlife.
