Colnbrook’s community groups to put current plans before residents
Colnbrook’s two biggest resident groups appear to be going from strength to strength … but will be vying for residents to join them in different meetings over the coming fortnight.
The CCA has called a Members Meeting for this coming Monday June 30th, while the CRA is holding its Annual General Meeting on Thursday, July 10.
The Colnbrook Community Association will go first, hearing updates on the Colnbrook Youth Club and, in particular, the CCA’s Summer Youth Programme which is hoped to keep its 120+ members occupied throughout the summer!
It will discuss the proposed Colnbrook Emergency Committee, participation in Slough Borough Council’s ‘Colnbrook Action Week’ and this year’s CCA Summer Fair. Membership and Meetings Secretary Raymond Jackson also hopes to have a representative from Thames Valley Police present to address concerns raised by members at its last meeting.
Only registered members are eligible to attend but a public meeting is planned for the near future. The meeting will be held in the Function Room of the Ostrich Inn at 7.00 pm on Monday, 30th June 2014.
The Colnbrook Residents Association says it is keen to hear from residents on how they would like to see the CRA develop.
The past 12 months have been very active for the organisation which has delivered a vast array of events including a Polish lunch, a Skittles Night, a Teddy Bears’ Picnic, Christmas Lunch, Easter Egg Hunt, Theatre Night, and Bollywood Evening. The organisation has also recently revealed details of a Scottish Night, and a special commemoration for the centenary of World War I which is anticipated to be the highlight of the year.
Its four committee members – Chairman Sean Kelly is currently joined by Secretary Neelam Verma, treasurer Jill Hood, and minute secretary Gill Angell – will all stand down and seek re-election.
The CRA will deliver, and seek approval for, its financial report for the past year, discuss its events programme, and appoint representatives to outside bodies.
The meeting will be held in Room 1 of the Village Hall, kicking off at 7:30 pm on Thursday July 10. The CRA does not operate a membership programme and attendance is open to all residents.
