“Pocket Park” Meeting/Action – Sunday 20th from 11am

Howdy Neighbours,

Clifton Place / Back of Bargrange and Norwoods all invited

We’ve recently won a £500 bursary to improve the back streets of Clifton Place, this is on top of a grant for a community garden space behind Chicken Cottage/Norwood Ave

You might have seen our initial community day where we make an excellent start clearing up a few areas. And our next “day of action” is this Sunday (20th) where we will be out and about from about 11 (meeting back Clifton Place).

We’ve got a few ideas on how the spend the money but need your input… so please pop out and see us, give us your ideas and if you have time lend a hand.

If you can’t make it, there will be lots of other ways to help coming soon…..

E-mail us or get us through Facebook if you want to – if you want to be added to our ‘action’ WhatsApp group, send your mobile number too.

Sunday 6th October – Work Party – Back Clifton Place/Bargrange

Sunday is a “work party” starting at 11am and carrying on through the afternoon. Do pop along and join us at any point even if you can’t make the start. It’s primarily being driven by residents of Clifton Place but others are welcome to join us and find out what’s going on/join in with ideas about what could improve our neighbourhood.

We’ve recently received a small grant of £500 to improve the back street of Clifton Place where it borders on Bargrange Av. with the help of local councillor Vick Jenkins.

Fellow resident Alex has illustrated some awesome ideas that we can all help with.

It’s a day of action with a range of tasks for all. The main aim is to clear back certain bits and see what we’ve got. In the afternoon – We’ve got some maps to help with getting ideas down about what it could be like.

Oh and did we mention CAKE and maybe samosas?!

Site Visit – 29th August 3:15pm

Hi Norwood folks!

There will be a site visit by Catherine Roberts of Shipley College to look at the cleared area behind Chicken Cottage (off Clifton Place), which is ready for construction of a community garden.  The college will hopefully be constructing some raised beds there.  We’re meeting there on the 29th August at 3:15 pm.

What it looks like AFTER clean up work

If any of you are available please do come along and forward this to anyone who you might think will be interested to input/see what’s going on.
Many thanks!

Litterpick – Community Pitch In!

Meet up – have a chat with neighbours then do some tidying!

Sunday March 17th, 2pm-4pm

If there’s an area of your neighbourhood or street you want to see tackled, we’ll do it together, and make an assessment of other areas to see what further action can be taken.

We’re particularly interested to hear ideas about what should happen with the land behind Chicken Cottage which has been repeatedly fly-tipped.

Hope to see you there!

Meet at the top of Norwood Place. We have litter-pickers and some bags but yard brushes and tools are welcome if you want to bring some. We also have a bag of gloves, but don’t wear your best clothes and feel free to bring your own gloves if you have them!

Litterpick Bus – Gallery

Our Litterpick Event held on Sunday 28th of February was a great success!

Thanks a lot to everybody that took part – we didn’t get everyone’s names but it included children and parents from Shipley C or E School, Green Councillor Kevin Warnes and a wide range of residents and their kids.  Special shout out to the lads who pushed the trolley with litter pickers around for hours.

Well done everyone and well done Norwood Neighbourhood Association.  The place looks 100 times better!

We are going to spend an hour tidying up the litter and dumped items from down the street. We want to clean up and re-cycle what we can. This event was a great success last March when 15 residents helped out. These back-streets can be nice, safe and clean places
to walk up and down and for children to play in, or just nicer to look out on!

If you don’t want to pick up the litter yourself, you can still help us by offering moral support or cups of tea! Or feel free just to come and have a chat. If there are other things you’d like to see done in or around our street come and talk. This event has been organised in conjunction with Norwood Neighbourhood Association.

We are meeting at 1.30pm on Sunday at the bottom of Clifton Place (just outside number 57 – Dave and Cathy’s house). Everyone is
welcome.
