Tackling the climate & ecological emergency together

Dirty Water, Filthy Money

Our seas and rivers deserve better. Nature deserve better. We deserve better.

Sewage is not the only pollution, but it has single source and we know who is causing it, Water Companies, like Wessex Water who manage water in Dorset. We just want clean, safe water. We want sewage to be treated and sewerage infrastructure (pipes and drains) to work as it should. We want Wessex Water to do the job we pay them to do. That's a reasonable ask.

Around 50 people attended the Community Assembly in February. The talks were insightful, and discussions were action-oriented. You can access the Pollution Solution Summary and Outcomes document here:

Water companies are a steaming hot topic right now, and national press are giving good coverage to actions across the country.

Queen Thorne Nature Watch Group was born out of the desire to protect and support the nature that is on our doorstep, in the Queen Thorne parish, near Sherborne, Dorset. Nature Watch fonder Kim Creswell tells us more about the project, it's origins, their battle to protect nature, and the project's importance to reverse biodiversity loss.

If you have concerns or views about water pollution in Dorset, come along to our Community Assembly on Weds 7th Feb 7pm-9.15pmm at Easton Methodist Church Hall, Easton Square, Portland. We will hear from community members about how water pollution affects different aspects of our lives; health, environment, wildlife, local economy, leisure and pleasure. This will help frame the issues, followed by in-depth discussion about how we can tackle them together and individually.
The event is being organised by the local Extinction Rebellion group, joining forces with other concerned local groups.
Come to the assembly and have your say. There will be refreshments and snacks. For further info please contact Caz, 07540 997717 or email or
