Burley Village Community Association

Inaugural Annual General Meeting

7pm, Tuesday 3rd March 2015

Burley Greenhow Community Centre, Haddon Road

(Immediately following the Burley Police PACT meeting which starts at 7pm)

A new community Association is being formed in this area, membership will be free and open to all residents. The group will concentrate on the area between Argie Avenue and Kirkstall Road, including the Haddon’s, Greenhows, St Matthias’s & Woodsides and work with other community groups in the area eg. Burley Top, KVCA, Friends of Burley Park, Gilbert & Sandfords Residents Association.

Benefits of a Community Association:

  • Stronger voice together regarding services, planning, issues
  • Community cohesion, social events
  • Community involvement to improve the area, eg. planting, community clean-ups
  • Ability to attract funding through grants not available to public bodies
