Harfield Village Community Improvement District (HVCID)
HVCID has been established to improve safety in Harfield Village. We are a voluntary community association and receive no money from the city or residents’ rates. The only requirement to be an HVCID member is that you are a Fidelity ADT (F-ADT) customer and live in Harfield Village (Imam Haron Rd to Kenilworth Rd). There is no cost for HVCID membership.
HVCID has formed a partnership with Fidelity ADT which has resulted in, among other things: 2 dedicated patrol vehicles; LPR and overview cameras at 7 points; LPR alerts and a Crime Alert WhatsApp group monitored by F-ADT; Sponsorship which enables us to employ our manager, maintain the cameras, host community events, and support local initiatives.
Please contact the HVCID Manager, Jen Rowe, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 081 412 6109, during office hours, if you would like to know more, sign up as a member, subscribe to our newsletter, or join the Crime Alert WA group.

Friends of Harfield Village Parks
The Friends of Harfield Parks (FOHP) is a community group whose main objective is to maintain and improve the four municipal parks (Hampstead, Surrey, Princes and Purley) within Harfield Village. Founded in 2012 to address the increasing neglect of the parks, the FOHP has been instrumental in working with residents and the council in cleaning up graffiti, replacing old jungle-gym equipment, planting trees, creating and maintaining plant and flower beds in the parks, and otherwise keeping the parks safe, clean and friendly.
The FOHP funds a weekly gardener to work in the parks and organises community events throughout the year, including:
- Bi-monthly garden parties where we weed, mulch, replant and otherwise maintain the Village’s garden spaces.
- The Railway Cleanup, held on the first Sunday in May.
- Participation in the Harfield Village Carnival and the Harfield Christmas Market.
The FOHP’s ability to keep the parks neat and tidy depends on community support. You can get involved through coming along to one of the garden parties and contributing your labour, plants, mulch/compost or grey water; through donating to the FOHP operating funds; or by buying plants at the Carnival and Christmas market.
The FOHP communicate through the FOHP Facebook page, a bi-monthly newsletter, and electronic flyers sent out before the garden parties. To sign up for our newsletter, send them an email at email@example.com or follow them on facebook.
The HVA is grateful to the Friends of Harfield Village Parks Team for their time, energy and passion for maintaining the four beautiful parks in the village.
