Wilford 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 the Iremongers Pond Association lending its support to this worthwhile ongoing community project.
Our Constitution can be found here
Wilford Community Group meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month, at 7.30pm in The Ferry Inn. Meetings are well attended by our local Councillors, and we often invite guests from the Community to join us, such as the Principal of Emmanuel School, local Police officers and other Community leaders. See below for the Minutes from and Agenda for recent meetings.
Iremongers Pond Association
Iremongers Pond is a unique local beauty spot- which relies on members of the community for its up keep. The pond is stocked and is perfect for a tranquil day of fishing. Fishing is open to all members, membership pricing is kept low at 50p per week for the full year. Alternatively, why not take a stroll, or have a picnic, and just enjoy the peace of nature.
The pond has benefitted from a dedicated community association who maintain the pond and manage memberships, but needs more people to help support- any contribution is welcomed. For more information about the Pond, memberships and how you can get involved, please see the dedicated website
