We may not be Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland but our community still deserves a great festival!
We want to bring people together and celebrate the diversity of Ponders End through regular festivals and events.
The Ponders End Community Development Trust
PECDT is a voluntary organisation working to improve the quality of life in Ponders End and to make the area a better and safer environment in which to live work and study
What we do
PECDT works towards making things a little better by promoting a strong sense of identity for our local community. It is the only voluntary organisation which aims to involve local people and organisations in activities and partnerships, to provide a focal point for development and to fight deprivation in Ponders End.
We facilitate local capacity building, share information on funding initiatives and provides the opportunity to feed into local decision making processes.
Ponders End is seen as an area of high deprivation and the area is going through many changes with a major regeneration program, leaving the area feeling cold and unloved. Many families in the area can not get to the big events in London and just want to enjoy themselves locally. We have a great community that needs a little help.
How we will make it happen
Last year the Ponders End Community Development Trust put a small Christmas festival with very little funds. It was a great success. With help from local businesses we were able to reach out to local people and bring them together for day of festive activities.
This year we want to put on another event, bigger and better than the last, so that our community can enjoy a fun day out for all the family. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to bring this all together. We at the Trust have lots of support from volunteers to put in the time and effort but we need the funds to make it happen.
What we will do
If we reach our target of £2000 we will have a traditional merry-go-round, snow machine, lights, music and lots of activities and festive food for the whole family. We will also be able to reach out to local people helping them to meet new people and find out what's going on in the area.
if we exceed our target we are already planning events for 2018 and will use any additional funds for these events giving even more people an opportunity to get involved and celebrate
