Examples of our work
We host village events and community activities to raise funds for our village. The funds raised are invested back in the community. Recent benefits include the refurbishment of the Community Kiosk, the War Memorial railings and the on-going Clifton Park Play Area project. The annual Scarecrow Festival is a fundraising opportunity for our community. We make the marquee available free-of-charge to St. John’s Primary Academy for their school disco and provide opportunities for local community groups to raise much needed funds.
Our management committee meets monthly to discuss issues of concern to the community. We work closely with our local ward Councillors to ensure the voice of the village is represented and we normally have one of the Councillors attend our meeting.
Recent campaigns include campaigning for the speed sign on Clifton Common, supporting the formation of the Clifton Village Neighbourhood Forum, liaising with our Councillors over the recent increase in crime, Clifton Clean Up and the acquisition of the old telephone box
