GRASS Cliftonville

GRASS – Gordon Road Area Street Scheme – was originally setup in 2003 as a resident led community volunteer group, its stated aims are to improve the quality of life for residents in the streets surrounding Gordon Rd. in Cliftonville.

GRASS has built a strong connection with the community through the wide range of events we deliver each year and was community award winner at the Thanet Community Awards in January 2019. GRASS Cliftonville is also proud to be members of the NVCO which has a diverse community of over 14,000 member organisations – a third of the voluntary sector workforce in England.

GRASS runs a super calendar of community events throughout the year for the community which include Cliftonville in Bloom, Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema, Cliftonville Games and the GRASS Children’s Christmas party.
