After our long-standing Chair Brian Mumford stepped down at the AGM in May 2016, committee members decided it was important for Broad Green to continue to have a Residents Association and we formed a working group to agree the best way forward, which the AGM agreed Malcolm Bell should lead as Acting Chair
We agreed on 4 keys aims and objectives for the association moving forward:
1. To support and empower local people and to support local projects and initiatives aimed at improving the Broad Green area and the lives of its residents
2. To provide up to date local information through our website, emails, newsletters and events
3. To encourage local participation in consultations which affect the Broad Green area.
4. To work with other local residents groups and organisations which have similar aims
To help us communicate with you more regularly, we will send emails to members to let you know of local news, events and consultations which might be of interest.
There will still be the occasional paper newsletter, but if they are going to be regular we need members to assist us write and distribute them.
Broad Green Residents Association has close links with local schools and regularly supports the Elmwood School Summer Fayre (see photos from 2011 below).
The committee meets on the first Monday of second month at Federation Hall, behind 17 Elmwood Road, CR0. Any member who wishes is welcome to come along. Please contact BGRAchair@gmail.com to confirm the dates and times
The Annual General Meeting is also open to all members – in 2017 it will take place on Friday 5th May at Federation Hall, Elmwood Road at 8.00pm
