The Well Street Common User Group (WSCUG) was formed at the end of 2001. It provides a forum for local residents and all those who use the Common to come together, discuss and give their views on all matters concerning the Common.


This website aims to give you information and resources to help you find out more about Well Street Common, its local environment and the activities of the User Group, as well as inviting you to take part and put forward your own ideas and suggestions.
