Over 50,000 of you have already joined us in calling for a reliable bus service for every community.
With #Elections2021 happening tomorrow, maybe now is an ideal time for politicians to commit to a reliable bus service for every community? 🤔 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-56827739

Catch up and find out how candidates intend to ensure a fast and fair response to the climate and ecological emergencies in the #westofengland
When access to nature is so vital for our wellbeing, it's unacceptable that deep inequalities in who has access to the countryside still exist.
That’s why we are working to make sure everyone has access to the countryside, so everyone can benefit 💚💚💚
The @CPRE is calling on the Government to use the forthcoming Planning Bill to strengthen planning protections for green space & prevent high levels of development in AONBs - which has gone up (land developed or earmarked) by 129% since 2012. #greenspaces https://inews.co.uk/news/environment/englands-highly-prized-countryside-areas-are-being-lost-to-reckless-development-say-campaigners-967536
In 2018 the government committed to introducing a #DepositReturn Scheme.
Three years later, a DRS has been delayed until at least 2024. We can’t let that happen.
Send a message in a bottle to @BorisJohnson: Don't dilute or delay a DRS!

As bluebells start to emerge in woodlands across the countryside, you may be wondering how to tell native bluebells apart from non-native Spanish bluebells.🧐

Countryside charity @CPREAvonBristol slams proposals for anaerobic digester plant near Keynsham https://theweekin.co.uk/news/countryside-charity-slams-proposals-for-anaerobic-digester-plant-near-keynsham/
BREAKING NEWS: #DepositReturn system has been delayed again, until at least 2024.
With 8 billion drinks containers littered or landfilled every year in the UK, we can't afford to kick the can down the road.
We need an all-in system now. RT if you agree
BREAKING: Housebuilding proposed on Green Belt in local plans has quadrupled in the past eight years, with just 1 in 10 considered affordable.
On this trajectory, we risk losing ever more Green Belt while having no impact on the housing crisis.
BOOKING OPEN! Join our hustings events this April to quiz #Bristol & #WECA Mayoral candidates on their commitments to ensure the city and region’s response to the climate and ecological emergencies is both fast and fair. Submit your questions & book at: http://www.bristolgreencapital.org/events
Our free online Starry Skies workshops for children were a big hit during the @CPRE #StarCount this month. Look at some of the fantastic artwork the children who attended our workshops sent us. We're so impressed! Thanks to everyone who joined us. https://www.cpreavonandbristol.org.uk/news/our-starry-skies-workshops-for-children-were-a-big-hit/
Two-thirds of adults think protecting & enhancing green spaces should be a higher priority post-lockdown. The government can do this by:
👉 Adopting a ‘brownfield-first’ approach to development
👉 Putting access to nature at the heart of planning system
Green Belts are the countryside next door for 30 million people and act as the green lungs for our largest cities.
But why were they established, and why are they still important more than 60 years later?
Here's all you need to know about Green Belts 👇 https://www.cpre.org.uk/discover/what-is-the-green-belt/

It's #NationalWalkYourDogDay, and #Penwith has many great walks for #dogs. If you are walking your dog do clean up after them and keep them under control, especially near livestock and wildlife. We'd love to see your dogs in Penwith photos! #Cornwall #NationalLotteryHeritageFund
Yesterday felt almost (don't say it!) - spring-like!
Flowers are in bud, birdsong is increasing and the ice has melted away 😀
