Ward Budgets are now in their third year, providing the opportunity for local people to spend money on local services. £50,000 has been allocated to each ward across the City of Westminster.
The emphasis is on community spirit and engagement. Following feedback from residents and having reviewed past projects our plans for this year include IT Drop-in Sessions at St John’s Wood Library, and weekly Painting & Drawing Classes for the over 50’s. In addition Christmas lights in the High Street will return this December, jointly funded with Abbey Road, our neighbouring ward.
Other projects under consideration include cultural trips, hanging baskets in and around the High Street, a Book Club and green initiatives of gardening and allotment facilities. If you have any suggestions on other potential activities please get in touch.
