Thanks to Hessle West Open Gardens!

On 6th July 2014 Hessle West Open Gardens presented the Friends group with a cheque for £500 to enable us to create and install a “Bumble Bee Information Board”.  This generous donation will help pay for the manufacture of the board and stand.  The rest of the work, including the research, artwork, text and graphics will keep us busy for the next few months.  The plan is to install the board in time for summer 2015.

The Tree Trail is now OPEN!
Frank Kitchen, Deputy Mayor of Hessle, officially opened the Tree Trail for us on June 10th 2012.  Pick up your free leaflet from the Tourist Information Centre in the Bridge car park or download it here. Activities for all ages. Why not have a go with the kids during the school holidays!

Friends of Humber Bridge Country Park receive a donation of £300 from the Co-op.
Thank you to all members of the Co-op who voted for us recently in the Hessle store with the green tokens. We hope to raise further funds and together with this donation create an interpretation panel for the country park themed on wildflowers.

Friends of the Humber Bridge Country Park

We are a group of volunteers interested in the welfare of this Local Nature Reserve located on the North bank of the River Humber adjacent to Hessle Foreshore just west of Hull.  Here you will find a haven for people and wildlife set amongst woods, meadows and ponds.

Please join us at our conservation activities and/or indoor meetings. Everyone welcome!

Our Purpose...

             is to protect the Humber Bridge Country Park environment as a natural piece of countryside where animals and plants can flourish whilst allowing the public access to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

    Biologists, geologists, artists, dog walkers, joggers, bird watchers, picnickers, students, and people generally who simply like to visit the countryside are attracted to its varied landscape. 

   Towering cliffs, ponds, meadows, glades and different woodlands are brought together by an interesting network of country paths.

Indeed the varied scenery has given rise to some local nicknames to particular areas like “Little Switzerland”  and “Dinosaur Swamps” –  although not many people have seen dinosaurs recently!

A group of us travelled up to Thornwick Bay on a hot Sunday in July for a Rocky Shore Exploration trip expertly led by marine biologist Sharon, one of our members.
