Thank you to everyone who came to our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 9th January 2019, 7pm at the Children’s Centre, Waterloo Meadows, Elgar Rd. I am pleased that we have a new committee made up of 10 local residents.
Katesgrove Community Association likes to hold events and groups throughout the year to encourage community growth; the more people who get involved with KCA will enable this to continue to happen.
We also aim to support the rights and interests of our community, Katesgrove Ward, by working in partnership with Reading Borough Council, Thames Valley Police and other agencies.
We are aware that time is precious and everyone does not have time to attend monthly meetings, therefore at our Annual General Meeting in 2017 we made the decision to move to bi-monthly meetings and would encourage residents to get involved in projects that can help make a difference to where we live:
- Environmental issues, (such as clean ups and a community allotment)
- Events and fundraising (organising & helping out with fayres, The Big Lunch)
- Crime – The Safer Neighbourhood Forum forms part of KCA and this could involve helping with specific issues that the police may be working on – or helping them with leaflet drops and encouraging reporting.
We need more residents to get involved. If you have a preference as to what you would like to get involved with, please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org.
