FRIENDS OF HARROW WEALD RECREATION GROUND - In Only Six Months

What’s going on with the past six months - It’s a funny olde planet we live on.

In life you can be blind to what’s around you, sometimes by choice, sometimes due to lack of time and intensity of life.

The friends are an amazing group of people who work towards making our space a better place for all.

Since September The Friends have achieved so many small steps with much more planned.

The Hut (In Just six months)

It started as a non-used shed that laid unused for months/years and was given to us just a few weeks before the royal wedding.

  • It was cleaned by two crews, the first cleared it, the second cleaned it
    It was repaired by the goodwill of members
    Gifts started to arrive in the form of water urns, fridge/freezer and cooking facilities
    Tools started to arrive to help around the grounds

In January when we cleaned the park there was not even a cup of tea for our efforts.

By late May 2018 we were able to boil a kettle and have some tea
