Park & Warley Our Communities Award 2015: Contribution to a Safer Cleaner Greener Environment – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Contribution to a Safer Cleaner Greener Environment

WINNER: Friends of West View Park

The friends of West View Park Group is made up of local residents that reside close to the West View Park who came together as a result of problems in the park such as alleged drug dealing, dog fighting, littering, graffiti, fly tipping and ASB.

The group has now been in existence for just over 12 months but in that time they have forged close working relationships with the council gardening team, community wardens, councillors and police, and have also gone on to start a park watch group which reports any problems and issues to the appropriate service.

They regularly meet up on a Saturday morning in order to carry out clean ups in the park and they are now also involved in the planning of the WV Park family fun day.

The group continues to grow in numbers and promotes the park to the wider community as an important leisure and play facility and they are also developing links with the local high and junior schools in the hope of educating young people about the importance of West View Park.
