How did it start? A Residents’ or Community Association for Cannon Park was inaugurated at a meeting on 16 March 1978.
Early objectives included provision of a play area, a community building and a senior youth cub. Newsletters record a thriving youth club of up to 80 teenagers which met once a week at the Primary School.
The Association organised numerous social events, the proceeds of which, until later years, heavily subsidised its routine work.
The first web site was inaugurated on 18 June 2008.
The Association has the support of the West Midlands Police and ward councillors.
