Friends of the Fowey Estuary

The Friends joined forces with the Fowey Marine Conservation Area Volunteer Group in 2012. With a programme of walks and talks as well as a variety of practical conservation activities, there really is something for everyone.

Our membership is open to all, and we are a friendly group with people from all walks of life - local residents, sailors, fishermen, walkers, artists, bird-watchers, naturalists, cyclists, holiday makers and anyone who is interested in the care and wellbeing of the Fowey Estuary.

The Friends of the Fowey Estuary was formed in 1999 to provide a focus for voluntary activities for the conservation of the Estuary.

Thanks to all that came to our Love Your Beach Day event at Readymoney on 16th February. We were pleased to unveil our new sign all about the rockpool creatures at Readymoney, dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Campbell, our former treasurer, in recognition of the support he and his family gave to our group.

Thanks also to CWT Your Shore Beach Rangers for helping us fund the sign.

It was lovely to see Readymoney Beach Shop open again and hot chocolates were warming the hands of our beach cleaners and beach artists! Needless to say we hardly found any litter, we're so lucky to have local volunteers who clean the beach everyday for the benefit of us all.

The National Bee Unit has confirmed a sighting last year of the Asian hornet in the Fowey area.This Asian hornet is smaller than our native hornet and poses no greater risk to human health than a bee. However, they do pose a risk to honey bees. If you suspect you have seen an Asian hornet you can report this using the iPhone and Android app ‘Asian Hornet Watch’ or by emailing

Members of the public can also report sightings by email to with a photo or on the Great Britain Non-native Species Secretariat website.
