What is Friends of Foleshill?
Friends of Foleshill is a group of community minded people who have started meeting informally. The aim is to develop an active network that can help shape the future of services in the area and the neighbourhood as a whole. You can get involved to help co-design and co-deliver services that are important to you and your family by:
- Sharing information, tools, skills and knowledge
- Promoting opportunities for getting involved
- Getting to know each other
- Influencing decision makers
- Celebrating, share your success stories with others
- Learning from others’ good practice
Where are the opportunities?
A well connected and informed community will help everyone, save money, time and effort and increase the local collective productivity of the neighbourhood.
To make this happen Friends of Foleshill group is bringing locals together to develop a multi-cultural community calendar of festivals which will take place in a variety of parks in Foleshill. (Parks were considered a good place as they are common to all and neutral). Suggested themes for the different events were:
Sport Light Food Music Fashion
What are the objectives?
In Foleshill we want to achieve a happy and proud community that enables people to have a voice and to become active within their own community to make things that are important to them happen.
What has been happening?
- A litter pick and picnic in Edgwick Park
- Attended Sport in the Park and carried out a survey about the area
Friends of Foleshill group is open to everyone interested in the area. Be part of it to change it, don’t wait for others to do it.
Celebrating the “Festival for Lights” season in Foleshill, this event is around the Light theme. The date and place for one the event would take place will be confirmed in due course. There will be more events and opportunities to get involved in the near future and these will be communicated when more info becomes available.
