Friends of Yate Common

The Friends group was formed in 1987 when there was a real threat that the Common would be built on.

The Friends saved the Common, and it is now a safe haven for many species of birds, mammals and insects, and is over 200 acres in size.

Find us on Facebook.

The aims of the group are to:

  • promote public awareness, use and enjoyment of the common and at the same time to protect the wildlife on the common
  • raise funds for enhancing the Common and encourage users to respect the environment
  • support and assist South Glos Council and Yate Town Council in the management of the Common

We hold regular work days: litter picking, cutting brambles and clearing gateways. Meetings are held quarterly.

Contact Pat Cotterell at or email: for more information.

Jubilee Field Status

Yate Common is a Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Field.

The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge aims to protect outdoor recreational spaces across the UK to create a grassroots legacy from the momentous events of 2012: Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The heraldic plaque, pictured right, is now in place by the entrance.
