  • Heath and Reach Parish Council
  • Soulbury Parish Council        
  • Bedfordshire Natural History Society
  • The Leighton Buzzard Ramblers

Also a representative from each of the following interest groups:

  • dog walkers
  • cyclists
  • local residents
  • Stockgrove Volunteer Rangers
  • young mums

Representatives from other organisations and interest groups are welcome.
