We are proud of the development of our Community Link project, whereby people are brought together variety of interests in common. Our overall aims are to encourage more members to join the activities to enhance community spirit. If you wish to start a new group contact us (contact) and we will help you initiate it.
Current active groups are:
Book club. We now have two book clubs; each meeting about once a month.
Bridge. For social bridge meeting each Monday
Gardening club. Covers variety of issues during the year. Organizes the front Gardens competition and the Open Gardens Day
Music group. The Ashford Place Monday morning Music Group is such a success we need more donated instruments like guitars, keyboards or anything musical.
Open Gardens Day. A very successful biennial event. Despite rain the 2011 day on 12th June was a big success and raised the most ever for charity.
Singing Group. Every Tuesday 7-830 in term time. Now around 50 people. Next term starts January.
Theatre group. The theatre group organizes regular (about every 2 months) visits to various theatres with discussion group a few days later.
Walking group. Current project is walking interesting local walks in Brent.
If you would like to join one of these groups or, indeed, have idea to start new group then email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our most exciting community project to date is the
Mapesbury Dell. The Dell trust has raised money from Council and
lottery to renovate a once sad and neglected
park in Hoveden Road. This park was finished in 2005 and has
just won a Gold award from London in Bloom awards
Membership of MapRA costs £2.00 per calendar year. Members are however encouraged to pay for five years membership.
