ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 22ND MAY 6.30PM

AT ST RICHARD'S CHURCH HALL - ALL WELCOME

 

Do you have a few hours you could spare to help the Association?  As you may be aware we now have The Hub (which was Alderbrook Stores) up and running.  The aim is to open everyday BUT we need more Volunteers to help run it.  This is a great Community facility offering an office with internet access, someone to help (if necessary) with computers ie email, printing or creating a letter.  Additionally it is somewhere to nip in for a natter or perhaps do a bit of gardening or even just to enjoy a little peace and quiet sitting in the garden.  A lot of work has gone into getting it to this point from applying for community grants, creating a welcoming environment for refreshments, painting and creating the office to the physical hard work weeding and tidying the beautiful garden.  If you would like to know more about what we do either pop in or come along to the next AGM on 22nd May (see below) and join our growing group.  More pictures can be seen on our Facebook Page - link above.  

 

Meetings

The Association meets every other month on the 3rd Monday of the month - but the next meeting is our Annual General Meeting and this will be on 22nd May 2017 at 6.30pm at St Richard's Church Hall.

All Welcome 

 

Next Meeting Dates are:
17th July 2017 7pm at The Hub

18th September 2017 at The Hub

20th November 2017 at The Hub

It is compulsory for all dogs to be microchipped from 6 April 2016.
Sally Wallace in Alderbrook can microchip dogs (and cats) and visit owners for just £15.   Her mobile number is 07766 292746 or email mailto:sally_seahorse@yahoo.co.uk

Sally Wallace from Alderbrook has trained as an animal microchip implanter, is fully insured and Kennel Club registered. £15 for one animal which is much cheaper than the vets and she will go to peoples home to save the stress of taking the animal to the vets.

 

 Area Reps can be found listed in the blue banner on the left hand side of this page.  These are all local people so please feel free to approach them should you have any issues.

 

We hold 6 meetings per year plus 4 Walkabouts to check on the estate with Housing Officers, local Councillors residents.

You would be well supported by a constructive committee who like to get things done. The reason we only have 6 meetings per year now is because the area is nice and peaceful with few problems - if you feel different then please feel free to come along to our next meeting or get in touch using the details shown at the top of this page.

No Cold Calling Zone

Since Tuesday 19th March 2013 this area is a No Cold Calling Zone.

By signing up to the scheme residents on the estate are deterring univited callers - please always request Identification for anyone wishing to enter your home.

 

 Volunteers Always Needed!

We need residents whether they be private, council or Housing Association tenants to help us do more. So much has been achieved in a short period of time but we can do more to improve quality the of life here in the Alderbrook area - if you want to be part of it please do contact us.

Many of us work full-time so help is always gratefully received.

There are many different topics that need residents involvement - our group only have 6 meetings a year but we also attend meetings for WRAG (Wealden Residents Action Group) who "oversee" all the community groups with issues that affect us all as well as getting involved in all the changes such as Council Tax, Benefits and the new Tenancies and even new Housing!

If you don't get involved or give us your input you have no reason to complain - we can and do influence issues but you need to get involved and have your say if not for yourself then for your children or relatives.

Thank you to the volunteers who have offered their services so far - more always welcome!
