Welcome to GMPRG v 2

Thank you for your interest in GMPRG. 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).

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 in Great Missenden, Prestwood and the surrounding area. The starting point for most of our projects is public opinion. In 2018, our Community Vision survey responses for the next 20 years are illustrated here.  The bigger the characters, the more interest was shown.

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.

What is GMPRG currently doing?

The pandemic has interrupted progress on the following but these are still active projects:

The need having arisen from the 2007 Community Vision for HP16, GMPRG worked with a range of local people and organisations to develop our own community newspaper: The Source for HP16.
