The Friends

The Friends of Aston’s Eyot is the charity which looks after the eyot – you can join us.

Access to Aston’s Eyot is free, but maintaining it and restoring habitats needs funds. The Friends of Aston’s Eyot is the charity which looks after the eyot. We are a passionate and committed group of local residents, carrying out conservation work and fundraising for nature. In 2022 Christ Church College, the owners of the land, granted the Friends a longstanding lease to act as custodians of the reserve.
