Background to the organisation
The ‘Party in the Park’ (PITP) events have been taking place in Winchester since 2011 and most of the volunteers and committee members of Winchester Party in the Park (WPITP) have been involved with the event for the past 3 years. Originally the idea of A2Dominion and The South Central Forum, the volunteers have steadily grown in confidence, experience and skills to the point were they are responsible for making the key decisions relating to the event and culminating in establishing themselves as formally constituted organisation in January 2017.
The purposes of WPITP are:-
“To provide, organise and manage community events and activities for the advancement of citizenship or community development and the relief of those in need, by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage for the benefit of the inhabitants of those living in the Winchester District”. More detailed information on our ‘Aims and Objectives’ can be found in our constitution, a copy of which can be provided on request.
