Thank you for your interest in GMPRG, which covers Prestwood and its environs. Here we will tell you what we do and what we need to get more things done. If you want to know who we are, our background, how we are funded etc, please refer to our About us page at https://www.gmprg.org.uk/about-us/ and its further links.
Our work is led by the wishes expressed in the Community Vision consultation of 2018. The report can be accessed by clicking the ‘word cloud’ summary on the right, or this link: www.gmprg.org.uk/CV2018_results.pdf
What do we do?
We work with the community, local councils and other organisations to initiate, develop and implement schemes for the social, economic and environmental benefit of the community of Prestwood and the surrounding area.
How do we do it?
GMPRG’s role is the delivery of projects, the funding for which comes mostly from statutory and other bodies. Our committee consists of local residents who want to work with the community to make our area an even better place to live. Please see contact details if you would like to learn more about how to assist.
What do we need to do it?
GMPRG needs imaginative ideas and more people to help deliver the projects. We need publicity for those ideas and to show what we have already achieved.
Secure Bike Parking
GMPRG has had success in raising money for secure bike parking projects within the Parish. Funding is currently available for further secure bike parking in the Parish.
