The Friends of Harrow Weald Recreation Ground is a group formed by local people who care for our park, nature, and people in our local area.
There are many ways in which the aims of the group can be achieved and projects that are developed through interaction and time spent in the park, at local events, or just strolling around and speaking with people in the community. Everyone is welcome to get involved and to help create an inclusive, safe and exciting space where we can all enjoy ourselves.
The aim is to create an open area that can cater for the needs of many people by providing, as well as a quiet and reflective place, a happy and welcoming environment to share with the group, to enjoy events and sport and where people can develop respect for the environment. By keeping the park in good order, we hope that less littering and graffiti will occur and park users will be encouraged to care for their space.
Funds have already been raised from the community events held in 2018, from donations and from the welcome and generous support given by local supermarkets and businesses.
In addition, early in 2019, our application for a pocket park grant was successful, and this will help to make our goals achievable. This grant concentrates on improving health and wellbeing, lessening social isolation, providing cohesion in the community and just having fun. GET INVOLVED VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
