Welcome to the website of the Great Western Park Residents’ Association (GWPRA). We are a growing community living just west of Didcot.
The Residents’ Association (RA) was officially formed following a residents’ meeting held on the 24th May 2012. RA meetings are to be held monthly on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30pm until 9:30 pm in the Northern Neighbourhood Committee Centre, Sir Frank Williams Avenue, Great Western Park. There are no meetings planned for August in order to allow for annual summer holidays.
You are cordially invited to the meetings. Please come along and lend your support in order to help make the night a truly successful one, as well as taking the opportunity to meet your new neighbours. It is only by people’s attendance that will ensure the association is a true representation of the views of the residents of Great Western Park.
Great Western Park is a 3300 home development currently being built on the edge of Didcot which straddles the Vale border.
Plans include schools – both primary and secondary, shops, community centres, a health centre, open spaces and play areas.
The development is expected to take a decade to complete.
Ownership of the Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre has finally been transferred to South Oxfordshire District Council.
Work on fitting out the centre will start shortly with bookings, hopefully, starting from week commencing the 27 July.
There is a Facebook Group set-up for the centre so please visit https://www.facebook.com/THENNCC
Earlier this year Sovereign Housing Association conducted a Community Survey on Great Western Park.
The results of this survey were presented to residents at July’s RA meeting by Martin Littleboy, Social Impact Analyst from Sovereign.
A PDF copy of the presentation is available to view/download here.
Any questions or further feedback please contact Martin via e-mail email@example.com
A big invitation to everyone to join in our very own community Activities Week in GWP, taking place from Monday 27th July. We have more activities this year and we are catering for slighter older children as well as the very young. We want parents to join is as well, so come along and try out the climbing wall, football skills training (just for the children I’m afraid), dance workshops, arts and crafts and much more. Everything is absolutely free. You will be getting a flyer through your door over the next couple of days with more detailed information. So please come and support your local community event.- Mark Bodeker
