Our support for the Friends of West Park Jarrow

We'd like to introduce the Friends of West Park Jarrow, a group which was set up by local residents in 2009 that work hard to keep West Park a place to be enjoyed by the local community.

They were concerned that their local parks beauty was being neglected and their biggest worry was that the park would eventually become run down. They decided that they could make a difference.

Since 2009, the group have met regularly with Council Officers, Councillors and other agencies to work together to make the park a pleasant place for the people of Jarrow.

They do semi reglar clear ups of the park, removing litter and unwanted rubbish, maintaining all the natual beauty that lives in the park. We were more than happy to be able to provide them with some dumpy bag sacks to hold their rubbish. A great assett to their community and they will be contining to make a difference for years to come.
