Back in 2010, the Waterside Forum, Park Community Centre, had the idea to jump on the (still current) trend to have a resident choir, although at the time we didn't think of it as much as having a choir, as perhaps just a way of learning to sing with confidence in a group. 12 months funding was obtained from a Lottery Grant with the "Cant Sing? Neither Can We!" project suddenly becoming a serious issue. The call went out to all singing /music teachers in the area, to see who would be prepared to take the residents tuning issues on, and who it was felt would suit the relaxed attitude that is prevalent in the area.

The new table tennis table finally arrived at Park Community Centre and had its inaugural matches played by the Park Youth Club (PDY). The funding for this was received from the Co-operative Community Fund and was for providing activities for the Tuesday Evening Youth Club. PDY members are really pleased with the new addition to their facilities and want to send out their thanks for the funding to everyone who was involved in submitting the application for the funding and also to The Co-operative Community Fund for allocating the money to their Youth Club.

Two registered charities (Waterside Weymouth Community Forum & Weymouth Community Volunteers) are working together on the latest “street art” project. “Art in the Park”. They will be repainting the Park Community Centre Chelmsford Street. Weymouth Community Volunteers have a gang of willing volunteers who are very happy to give up their free time to help the Community Centre which is the hub of the Park District and is used every day by various community groups and organisations, it has no paid workers and is soley run by volunteers. The paint has been supplied by Dulux, (with help from Groundwork South, another community charity based in the South). The paint will be used for painting the hall, used by many organisations, including the Park Youth club who are keen to put outline silhouettes of themselves on the lower part of the walls. The stairwell, small kitchen and reception area will all be painted to give the centre a more professional and welcoming feeling. The recycling centre will be given a lick of paint to brighten up the doors and the wooden planters will be given a fresh colour to brighten the area up around the train station. The second part of the project is to paint artwork on boards which will be placed in and around the park area – to brighten the area up and give residents a stronger pride in their area. And this is where the whole community can join in. You do not have to be an artist. Guidance will be given to all age groups by local artist Pete Sheridan, who will be on hand with designs and stensils. And there is a rumour there will even be refreshments. So If you want to come along and paint a board:- The venue and dates are:- All being held at The Park Community Centre Chelmsford Street, Weymouth
