Wilford Community Group
MISSION AND HISTORY
The Community Group was established in 2002, with the following aims:
To promote the interests of tenants and residents and campaign for improvements to housing conditions, services and the environment
To encourage the involvement of tenants and residents in the presentation and improvement of Wilford’s amenities
To provide representation of the interests of tenants and residents when dealing with Local Authorities and other bodies
To organise local events to encourage a community spirit
The Group is run by an elected Committee and holds monthly meetings which are open to all Wilford residents. The Group is closely associated with other local groups and organisations, most notably the Iremongers Pond Association, having established the Association in 2007. The Group also works closely with St Wilfrid's Church and the local Primary and Secondary Schools in working communally towards a common ambition of a better community and area to live in.
