St George Neighbourhood Partnership
St George Neighbourhood Partnership helped Friends of Troopers Hill with a number of projects from 2009 to 2016.
Following changes to the way the Council works a new group the St George Community Network has now taken over many of the roles of the partnership.
Through the Neighbourhood Committee, the Partnership allocated 'Section 106' money in March 2015 to be used as match funding for a new play area on Troopers Hill Field.
Friends of Troopers Hill were then able to raise grants to cover the rest of the cost and the play area and it was constructed in 2016.
Friends of Troopers Hill were awarded a total of over £3,500 from the Neighbourhood Partnership Wellbeing Fund. This money was for:
A new dog bin - Autumn 2009 - See 'The dance of the dog bins' in the Autumn 2009 edition of 'The Hill'
