The Friends Of The Camel Trail was formed in June 2011. Earlier that year Cornwall Council, who own and maintain the trail, floated the idea of a Friends group and arranged a meeting in Wadebridge Town Hall to gauge public response. Over 150 people turned up to hear the reasons behind the idea, with representatives from the Camel Trail Partnership and Cornwall Council on hand to answer questions.
After that initial meeting, a small group of enthusiastic supporters moved the idea forward by writing & adopting a formal Constitution which lists the Friends aims and objectives as being (in a nutshell) to preserve the trail and its environs for all and to promote its wildlife, heritage & history. Read more about the Camel Trail.
These aims are upheld by the Friends who have organised a number of well-attended walks, talks and litter picks. For details of future events, visit our Events page.
We are still growing and have many ideas and plans for the future. If you want to help us realise our plans, please consider joining us.
