Sharrow Vale Community Association comprises a group of residents who meet every month to discuss issues in the area. The aim is to to improve the area by undertaking such tasks as removal of graffiti, litter picking and generally working to create a more pleasant environment. From time to time the association also organises community events designed to be fun and bring the community together. One of the most popular and successful ventures has been the establishment and organisation of the Sharrow Vale market.
SVCA meets once a month to discuss actions and activities for the area and its residents. If you would like to get involved with your local community, please get in touch via Facebook or email. We’re always happy to have new ideas and volunteers!
Recent SVCA activities
Car park Action has been taken to clean up the area around the car park next to The Lescar. All the rubbish, graffiti and weeds have been removed. Planters have been placed in the area and climbing plants trained up trellis to cover the walls and prevent further graffiti.
Pocket park There are plans to renovate the pocket park behind the church in Eastwood Road. The planting has been neglected for a while and so the beds will be replanted with flowering shrubs and perennials to improve the appearance and to attract wildlife and insects.
Hunters Bar School The SVCA always endeavors to work closely with Hunters Bar school and have recently made a donation towards the construction of a green wall around their playground in order to protect the children from traffic fumes.
Planters Most people will have seen and enjoyed the planters full of flowers which have been installed and are being maintained by members of the SVCA. Two planters have been placed near to the gates of the primary school with involvement of pupils from the school who are now helping to maintain them.
