The North Swindon Community Group was established by local residents in 2014 with the support of SBC through a Localities New Shoots grant.
The group exists to host community building fun events for the area of North Swindon.
Our first event was the North Swindon Community Fun Day on the 6th September 2014 and further events were held in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
The group consists of a committee of local residents and exists for the local community.
We are a non political group that welcomes the expertise, help and support of all residents within the locality.
Whilst primarily about bringing together an event that all of the residents of North Swindon can enjoy, local charities and groups have also benefitted from monies raised at the event.
This year we were pleased to be able to support the Swindon Heart Safe Campaign. Details on how much were raised for this charity will be issued shortly but if you would still like to donate please find a link to their fundraising page below.
If you would be interested in joining the committee and helping us to develop the group then please contact us.
