 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 10 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; the Community & Environmental Budget meetings where funding is allocation (see Noticeboards below) as well as getting involved in all the changes such as Council Tax, Benefits and the new Tenancies.

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!



Please keep an eye on these for up to date information - if you have a local event you would like to advertise please contact Jo - 0771 261 1209
