STUDENTS from Clevedon have formed an environmentally aware action group and are spending their free time helping out on the Tyntesfield Estate at Wraxall. A team of 28 students, most of which attend Clevedon Community School sixth form, have formed a group called Team TYNT and they are each giving at least three hours a week voluntarily to assist the Tyntesfield Warden - Ian Chadwick. They have so far worked towards assisting newt colonies on the estate, helped to create ground to enlarge the glow-worm colonies and have assisted in surveys of the nine different bat types found on the estate. They have also spent many hours clearing undergrowth in the woodland to provide walkways for visitors.Clevedon YMCA has supported the youths by funding kit, transport and refreshments. Neil Foster Chairman of Clevedon YMCA said "The YMCA actively encourages youth participation in the community. "These young people are doing a fantastic job and we are pleased to support them".
