Our Goals

Each Summer the competition judges arrive unannounced to secretly award points for our entry submission. 

For each of the 8 scoring categories our members devised a multi-year action plan for 2019 to 22/23. This will be up for review in 2022, and in time for the 2023 competition entry, and we will be calling for interested members to participate.











Multi-Year Plan 


We will be hosting a meeting in 2023 to formulate our next 3 to 5-year plan.

1, We Don't Work In Isolation. 

Connections need to be forged and maintained between our volunteers and the local community, businesses, schools, groups, and support organisations. The aim is to leverage each other's abilities and achieve common goals.

6, Neat & Tidy

This is not just about litter strewn on the ground, it's about having well-presented streets, homes, shop fronts, and businesses. The absence of anything that doesn't add to the best presentation of the neighbourhood.

Our entry has a significant amount of housing and every house, open space, and street matters.
