Another group fell under the idea of ‘reclaim Woodquay’. Through learning of the experience other groups that have successfully developed their community. The tradition of Woodquay is a place where neighbours still are on first name basis and we wish to maintain this convivial character. This group aims to understand the needs of our community and promote a more positive usage of our shared environment.
From research into other areas through the world we have learnt the using a space changes the place – and reduces difficult behavior
All of the other projects relate to improving the appearance of the area – reclaim includes these but extends it to getting people to use waterside – through impromptu music sessions, yoga in the park – community sports in the plots and using the places as an art gallery.
