"If we don't do it who will?"

 

The Friends of Harrow Weald work towards transforming parks into the very best community centres. For the benefit of both the environment and park users, parks should be carbon neutral and kept free from plastic and general litter, provide accessible drinking water and a safe environment for all with a strong emphasis on recycling and teaching.

We place a special emphasis on the carers of people with ADHD, Dementia and similar conditions.

Sections of parks should offer quiet and safe places for people to spend some relaxing time outdoors, as well as providing the opportunity to chatting with people who want to meet other locals. Areas of parks should offer younger people a place to enjoy and learn about nature, whilst educational and inspiring projects encourage people who might not normally venture out much to view local parks as a safe place to come and relax - Enjoying life is important! 

The Friends have shown that parks can become an extension to our homes. Indeed, regular users feel at home in the park and enjoy the space and freedom it provides.

"Joining up the dots between people, nature and the well being for all involved,

brings communities together"

6060 Donate materials to recyling projects

Do you have some spare wood or rocks, maybe you have a business with a surplus of products.

Part of this project will see the recycling of 1000's of litres of water for community and nature's use.

Recycling is at the heart of many things we do; over the coming months we will be expanding some of our recycling projects.

Nature:

We will be building several sections around our park to aid nature and bugs, inspired through learning and to introduce new and exciting ideas.

Technology:

As part of our creating tomorrow’s parks today mission, we will be using a gigabit leased line into the park which will enable us to use technology around the park in new and interesting ways. We are fortunate enough to have enough support from the local community, to allow us to extend this throughout the park.

Building materials:

We are looking for building materials, if you can offer any materials, please contact us.
