Launch a Street Association with a LOVE Marlow street party

Restoring Community to our streets in Marlow

A loose association of stakeholders in Marlow including our mayor of 2014/15 Suzanne Brown, are working to encourage the creation of street associations. This is a town wide initiative in Marlow to encourage a greater sense of community at a street level. We have enlisted the help of a small Birmingham based charity
www.streetassociations.org who exist to encourage greater community at a street level throughout the UK.

It is so easy to start a street association (usually between 30 and 90 houses) and we are here to help. First talk to us and tell us about your street and together we’ll work out the best way forward. If you want to you can use a ‘stock letter’ to invite neighbours to come to an initial meeting. We will come to that meeting, normally in someone’s home, and explain what it is all about and how it works.We find that people really welcome the idea. At this meeting we will help form a ‘core group’ of neighbours to take it forward, normally 4 to 8 people, who’ll meet once a month for an hour. It’s the core group that comes up with imaginative ideas for events that bring people together – this can be anything – but we are suggesting that a LOVE Marlow Street party could be a great way to start.

Several street associations have already ‘launched’ in Marlow and they are finding a transformed community where people know each other, smile,
greet, find they have things in common and know they really belong. And just ‘look out’ for each other. If you would like to find out more or to book us in to help call or email Peter Hopkinson 07770 756779 phopkinson@thepheasantry.com
