What does the WPRA do?
Since it began back in 1906, the Wimbledon Park Residents’ Association has provided a forum for discussion of important local issues and a platform for action on behalf of thousands of local residents.
As local authority funds are increasingly squeezed, services and facilities are permanently under pressure and the role of organisations like ours is more important than ever to ensure information about relevant issues is distributed and that the voice of residents is heard in a wider context.
The WPRA gives the Wimbledon Park community an authoritative and respected voice when dealing with Merton Borough Council. An individual can achieve only so much, but as a team we can and do achieve so much more.
We keep a close eye on local planning applications, and have been very successful in offering input on as well as opposing unsuitable developments where appropriate.
We promote planting and improvements in local parks and green areas.
We work with the local police to help you fight crime in your street by publishing the crime statistics in our newsletter.
We led the initiative to redevelop Wimbledon Park Hall so that once again we can have our own community centre.
We have put on fairs and shows and supported numerous local campaigns, individuals and families faced with tragedy.
The Wimbledon Park area is growing and improving all the time. Your Wimbledon Park Residents’ Association is more active than ever and we are happy to put in time and effort on your behalf. But we cannot function without funds, so do please support us financially by becoming a member.
Thanks in advance for your support. It is hugely appreciated.
Iain Simpson, Chairman
