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 9:30pm at the Boundary Park Pavilion, 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 participation 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.
The Great Western Park Residents Association AGM is taking place on Thursday 4th May 2017 at 7.30pm, Boundary Park Pavilion.
The AGM will include the election of committee members (voluntary roles). Further information is available in the attached poster.
If you would like further details for any of the roles, please get in touch. Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
by 27th April 2017
GWPRA Chair, David Slingo has had to step down from the role due to moving away from GWP. John Boden, Vice Chair, has kindly volunteered to cover the role until the Annual General Meeting and elections on Thursday 4th May 2017.
We would like to thank David for all his hard work, wisdom and the strategic direction he has given to the GWPRA. We also wish him and Julia all the best for the future in their new home.
