Over the past year, the St Helier, the Wrythe or Wandle Valley Local Committee has funded a number of projects to help improve the local area, such as installing Welcome to the Wrythe sign, community noticeboards and an outdoor gym for St Helier open space.
All these projects were proposed by members of the community and discussed at the committee meetings, gaining support from Councillors and Community Representatives.
Who sits on the Committee?
The Local Committee Chair and Vice Chair are appointed from the local ward councillors, who all sit on the Local Committee.
A number of formally nominated community representatives also sit on the Local Committee and although they do not have voting rights, they have a very important part to play in reflecting the views of the residents they represent and ensuring that information is shared.
