The long-running Kingswood Residents Association (KRA) is looking for new members as it heads into 2022.
The group, which has been run by volunteers from the area since its inception in 1987, currently has around 400 members. But membership has dropped over the pandemic, something which they hope to reverse in the coming year.
The money used for membership is used to finance events for the whole estate to enjoy and also goes to local charities or causes that need support, such as the local Brownie group. Events of the past have included treasure trials, Christmas lights switch-ons and parties.
The KRA have a big plan for 2022, a family festival for residents with live music. This has been something they’ve wanted to do for three years, with the pandemic preventing attempts to mount it previously.
Social Media lead, Emily Clark said: “The Kingswood residents association is run by a committee of people who are passionate about the Kingswood Estate. We thrive to connect our community and want to organise great events for everyone to enjoy.
“We are focused on getting our residents voices heard and making change happen when it is needed. Most of all, we want every household on the Kingswood estate to be proud to live here.”
Membership currently costs £5 per year for each household. To join, email at email@example.com or visit them on social media, where they can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
