Collaboration brings results in West Parley

Parley Sports Club

28 Feb 2013
Close co-operation between a number of local groups is bringing benefits to residents of West Parley. The Parish Council had been asked to provide public toilets close to a large playground but the cost was excessive. However, by funding minor building works at the adjoining Parley Sports Club, residents are now able to use the existing toilets at the Club at all times. Local residents and companies have donated a whole range of items for community use, including flag poles, lamp columns and light fittings to help a number of community projects to improve recreational facilities in the village. A large quantity of soil and wood chippings were donated by Eco Sustainable Solutions. Volunteers give up their time to maintain community gardens to a high standard and Sports Club staff mow the Council's Recreation Ground in return for use of the land for football training.

There is also collaboration between local groups on running social events in the village and sharing information on grant funding. Club Co-ordinator and Councillor Simon Jordan says "The close relationship between the Parish Council and the Sports Club is reaping rewards for all the community. Together, and with the help of the amazing volunteers in the area, we will continue to make improvements to the village for both residents and visitors to enjoy".

Parish Council Vice Chairman John Cullen says "All organisations are being faced with increasing challenges in this difficult economic climate but we have overcome some of these in the village with our local co-operation. Everyone's a winner this way". The benefits of this collaboration have been noticed by residents. In a recent letter one wrote "This kind of community spirit appears to be sadly lacking these days and it is refreshing and inspiring to live in an area where the community is a community in every sense of the word".
