Lower Green, Esher

Three years ago Jenny French agreed to organise, on a voluntary basis, a mother and toddler group in the Lower Green area of Esher. From this initiative various other activities developed, generating a greater sense of community and providing educational and social opportunities for local residents. The Hazelhurst Trust has contributed to the costs of employing staff to run these activities and to fund some research into taking an ‘Asset Based Community Development’ approach to improve further the quality of life in this area. In May 2012 we helped to organise a workshop with members of the Lower Green Community Association, run by Cormac Russell of the ABCD Institute.
