Join the Park Clear Up with The Friends of Harrow Weald

The Friends of Harrow Weald work towards transforming parks into the very best community centres, for the benefit of both the environment and park users.

This is achieved in several different ways, much like the jigsaw of life, using a convergence of nature, technology, recycling, education and wellbeing for humans and bugs alike, with many conversations and goodwill of residents.

We meet every Sunday at 10AM to litter pick around our park and area, but once a month we have a Super Sunday (Litter pick plus refreshments) we meet up, litter pick, tidy up and do some light maintenance around our park. Super Sundays include a light breakfast, tables and places to sit and chat with others.

Join us this  Mitzvah Day on Sunday 20th November 2022 10 am (meet at ParkLife Cafe)

Harrow Weald recreation ground is fortunately a very clean park, in thanks to the amazing community around it; therefore, Mitzvah Day does not offer any hard work, just a few options around the park to help care for humans and bugs alike, with an inspiring feeling of we are all in it together.

Please come and enjoy some time together in our local park, rain or shine, enjoy life and nature, we are alive.

2022 – This year we are going to include our Super Sunday, with a breakfast NOT in bed snack chat and a bit more.
