Alice Park community garden


Friends of Alexandra park are a group of enthusiastic residents who first came together to address anti-social behaviour in an 11-acre park south of the city. As well as holding regular community action days to pick up litter and undertake new planting, they organise an annual, family fun day for the local community. They also worked with the pupils of a nearby secondary school to create new benches for the park.



 Oldfield Park Station
'On Board' Community Group: Cllr June Player’s tremendous success in engaging the local community in improving Oldfield Park Station has led to her winning a prestigious award from Network Rail. Chosen from 700 nominees, June placed first in the ‘Outstanding Volunteer Contribution’ category. June’s role in the transformation of the station and surrounding area has also earned her Mayor of Baths’ Citizen Status. When she took her passion to the polls and was elected an Independent Councillor for the ward, she celebrated as only June could – by organising a community litterpick around the station! The group entered the "Its your neighbourhood " scheme in 2012 and earned an 'Outstanding' Award, They have re-entered every year and achieved "Outstanding" every time.
