Chairman Jork Andrews said: "We are keen to encourage as many people as possible to take a more active role in helping to preserve and enhance their local environment, and we would urge people to join us at our meeting tonight."
Now in its 14th year, the group has been responsible for initiating a number of environment-enhancing schemes around the town.
