We are very pleased that Katesgrove Community Association (KCA)currently has a committee made up of 9 local residents – every one of them getting involved when they can. (We are still looking for someone for the Secretary role).
KCA 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 November 2017 we made the decision to move to bi-monthly meetings and would encourage residents to get involved with 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 always want to encourage 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.
