Initially, there was no plan or team behind what we are doing, we are a group of locals who together have taken responsibility for our area, starting with our park at Harrow Weald Recreation Ground AKA Boxtree Park.
COME AND JOIN US
This year has a busy schedule planned with each event being meticulously put together by the locals for the locals.
ALL YEAR ROUND
LOCAL HEALTHY PROJECTS
Over the next year we have plans to install several features and landscaped areas, a pergola and sensory garden, which we hope will create some nice places to relax, enjoy, read a book or talk to a stranger.
The plans are to create an inclusive and exciting space to enjoy the outdoors.
EASY TO GET INVOLVED
Whether you fancy a mid week free session of Tia Chi, a stroll around the park, or one of the many other activities we have going on, you are welcome to join us
Examples of some of the events we have had over the year is a music festival, art show (with artists and public working together) and dog shows. We also hold regular quiz nights, professional entertainer nights and more. FIND OUT WHATS ON THIS MONTH
MONTHLY AND WEEKLY
As the projects around the park come to life, they will need more regular love and care. We are always looking for gardening enthusiasts, with a dedicated gardening shed arriving during the summer. FIND OUT MORE
FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME
Over the years the history of Harrow Weald has been recorded in several books and newspapers.
Our Historians are busy digitising pictures loaned to us by locals, compiling videos, we are busy writing the book in more ways than one.
WHY DO WE DO THIS
COMMUNITY PITCH IN
The change we have seen in the park and the local area is amazing, knowing your neighbours, smiling to people, enjoying our space. We have several people and local businesses that have offered help in a number of ways, so we decided to harness all this goodwill.
IT COSTS US £4000 FOR EACH BURGLARY.
CRIME OR ANTISOCIAL
Many people in the local community have an interest in not just the park, but the safety of entire local area area our park.
Create and maintain a safe and friendly environment. Members of the Friends attend local policing meetings, and local business is supporting some of our ideas. If you would like to discuss anything, please get in contact with our dedicated volunteers.
