Everyone loves Northala Fields and the green and open spaces.
Want to be more involved in local decision making and see how local money is being spent.

Exciting Community Projects
Building Bridges Consultation – Building a Strong & Healthy Community
Healthy eating project
Medlar Farm – 143 residents engaged

Vast majority of residents know how important it is to eat healthy, but 2/3 of those surveyed did NOT eat fruit and veg on a daily basis on Medlar Farm and 6 in 10 on Radcliffe Way!
Identified locations for community edible gardens and engaging residents in getting involved, including 2 x pop-up cafes at Medlar Farm hub and St. Joseph the Worker’s kitchen with both healthy eating & cooking workshops.
Working in partnership with a whole host of local organisations, businesses including Lidl and the Middlesex FA to deliver these changes.
Transform Your Space bids have been submitted to transform some empty spaces into areas which can bring benefit to the whole community and they have been successful!!
