Neighborhood Revitalization

Pride in Your Community

Well-tended public spaces are essential to creating sustainable communities and can help create a better quality of life for residents. Through the Pride in Your Community initiative, Telford and Wrekin will support residents to take an active role in improving their neighbourhoods. Residents will engage in community clean ups, improve public spaces and gain access to training and tools to improve their own gardens or outside spaces.

Cities of Service will help us to provide good quality volunteering experiences within Telford and Wrekin. I am fortunate to meet many volunteers in my current role and I’m always impressed by their energy and enthusiasm.
Councillor Shaun Davies, Cities of Service Ambassador

Health

Let's Grow

A healthy city is a strong city. In order to be healthy, residents need access to fresh food and education on healthy eating habits. Through Let’s Grow, Telford and Wrekin will encourage residents to grow and cook fruits and vegetables by providing them with hands-on training and equipment. Volunteers will run a community tool library and deliver healthy cooking courses.

I am delighted that Cities of Service will help us to showcase the work of our volunteers and to encourage more of our residents to become actively involved in their local area.
Councillor Shaun Davies, Cities of Service Ambassador
