The aim of the project is to identify local issues and priority actions, develop an action plan and follow this up by creating a local group of residents and community groups and support them to deliver the projects identified.

Shieldfield is already a great place to be proud of with some projects already carried out and a vibrant and active community with many different local groups making it a great place to live. Our action plan focuses on three deliverable next steps:

  1. Creating a ‘green team’ or ‘green gym’ to engage local volunteers in tidying up and improving the green spaces and planting across Shieldfield
  2. Setting up a series of football coaching sessions to encourage local children and young people to make more use of the Multi Use Games Area
  3. Creating a regular venue for local people to meet together, ideally as a community cafe.

We also submitted a bid for further funding for the community.
