After a number of years of maintaining a functioning Neighbourhood Watch in Claremont Terrace it has now become a fully fledged Residents Association – constitution, committee, AGM – the lot.
Barrie is Chairman and Joan, Social Secretary. We put on a Jubilee Street Party in June and a Bonfire Party in November. (It would have been silly for them to have been the other way round!)
They were both a great success despite the inclement weather. A real community spirit gripped the street; lots of people pulled together to hoist bunting, make banners, put up gazebos, provide food and make sure everyone had fun. Sadly two families have moved out of the street recently and we’re still waiting for some new neighbours to move in.
