What is this year’s annual theme and focus country?

For 2022, the national theme is ‘Our Evolving Relationship with Food’ and the focus country is the United States of America. Many groups base a number of meeting topics around these themes.

Is there publicity material available for me to promote my group?

Yes, we have fliers, leaflets, postcards and bookmarks, amongst other items, that you can use.  Look at the NWR Promotion Guide (see link at top of this page) for more ideas about how to use them.  They can be ordered by emailing the NWR National Office Team at [email protected] – please indicate what group you’re in, what material you’d like and roughly how many and they’ll put them in the post for you.

How do I start a new NWR group?

To help get you started we have created a guide for setting up new groups.  The link for the document is at the top of this page.
