Who are we?
We are volunteers with a desire to create a welcoming and happy place for all to enjoy.
The Friends group was started in Sept 2017 with a goal to improve and tidy up a rat-infested no-go area known as Harrow Weald Recreation Ground also know as Boxtree Park.
Soon this small group started to make a difference to the park, by cleaning the park of rubbish, regular litter picking, reduced fly tipping and general maintenance, this difference quickly got noticed in surrounding areas in more ways than originally intended or planned, and the friends group grew.
Our projects have been formed by our community via conversations, strolling around with complete strangers picking up lazy peoples rubbish, but strangely enjoying the time spent, everything we do is about being nice and sharing, and all projects are aimed at the heart of our parks, local community and local areas wellbeing. .
