Bats, Local Nature, and Inclusivity in Frampton Cotterell

It’s no secret that Frampton Cotterell Parish Council loves bats! We want to share that love with everyone in the community – and that means prioritising inclusivity.

To find out how we’ve worked on leading with inclusivity in our Bat Workshops, read this article on The Bat Conservation Trust’s website, written by one of our wonderful volunteers (Ruth Cowell) entitled “Using Bats to Improve Inclusivity of Access to Nature.

Ruth is responsible for organising this project and for bringing the idea to our attention. Her hard work and enthusiasm for bats and inclusivity ensure that everyone has the chance to get just as passionate about bats and local nature as we are!

If you are interested in borrowing any of our bat detectors (for free!) or if you’d simply like to find out more about how to get involved in our Climate & Nature work, get in touch with us at
