Barnet helps residents in difficult times.

What is 'PledgeBank'?

Barnet Pledgebank can be used to gather together people to get projects done. These can be tasks such as clearing snow and ice from pavements in the street, painting over graffiti or setting up computer classes in your area.

The website is based on the simple principle that the person making the online pledge will work to make it happen “but only if” a number of other people commit too.

Pledges don't have to be started by the council — organisations, schools, community and volunteer groups can all get involved. Submit your pledge ideas.

PledgeBank is designed to help residents passionate about doing their bit for the community. By working together, we can offer services that are popular and worthwhile.

Street Gritting.

Barnet Council will support residents who wish to clear snow by offering grit and spreading equipment. Four residents must sign up to the pledge (one of whom will be the community grit keeper): sign up to grit your street!

The Hendon Conservative Association hopes that you have not been too badly affected by the weather and if you have been, 'PledgeBank' is the solution to get your street gritted!

Diamond Jubiliee Parties.

Barnet Council will help you celebrate the Diamond Jubilee with a street party in your street on Sunday 3rd June 2012 provided at least 4 households agree to help organise it. Sign up or start a pledge to arrange your party!
