The GWPRA runs and supports several specific community projects, groups and events, in addition to the collation of Residents’ opinions and representation of their interests.


Community Defibrillator

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United Kingdom, accounting for an estimated 100,000 deaths each year.
The intention of the project is to provide all Residents living on Great Western Park, Didcot with good access to an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED).

Community Road Safety Project

This year 187,050 people were injured or killed on UK roads. In the past few years the number of casualties in 20mph limit roads has risen dramatically. The leading cause of deaths of children over 5 is due to the roads and mostly as pedestrians. The aim of this project is to further inform the authorities of the issue and suggest an effective traffic calming scheme, prior to the death or serious injury of a resident.

Community Centres Project

The Community Centres Project has the aim of forming a bid to assist or advise with the Management of the District and Northern Neighbourhood Community Centres.

Outreach Project

Following a successfully competition to select a new Logo for the GWPRA and increase the profile of the GWPRA, the Community Outreach project was formed. The aim is to obtain funding to publicise GWPRA and encourage the widest possible community involvement. Since the Development is continually growing, considerable effort is required to engage the newcomers.


GWP Babies and Toddlers Group

The GWPRA financially supported the once struggling Great Western Park Babies and Toddlers Group, this is now regularly full to capacity and thriving, as a result.

The GWPRA also financially supported the GWP Community Cafe to assist with the initial setup. Thursday mornings 10am-12pm at the Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre are now a busy with residents enjoying a hot drink and lovely cakes, whilst chatting to their neighbours.
