This year’s AGM is particularly important as we wish to lead the way in Lambeth to make our TRA even more effective, and to give you, the residents, more say, power and involvement in running engagement activities on the estate. The Committee are proposing that we change the constitution (the rules given to us by Lambeth), to place more emphasis on resident engagement, rather than everything being decided by the Committee.

The changes are:
The TRA Committee role will be to manage the Community Hall. Half the money made from the rental will go into upkeep and further improvements to the hall. The other half of the money will be put into a Community Fund. Any resident can apply to this fund for a project they want to run that supports the aims of the TRA (above). At our quarterly residents meetings, projects will be presented, and all residents will get to vote on which projects deserve funding. The TRA Committee will be there to offer you advice, support, information and publicity for your projects and ideas. If you require more money for your project than we have, the TRA Committee can apply for an appropriate grant.

Planning ahead for the next three months, our ongoing projects will apply for funding:
• Food Growing   • Hanging Baskets   • Homework Club   • Summer Trip   • BBQ   • Keep Fit & Tai Chi

To make changes to the constitution, we will need to vote. If you are unable to attend the Awards and AGM on the 9th May, you can complete the form overleaf to cast your vote.

We will also be holding elections for the TRA Committee: chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer – as well a representative from each of our five blocks.

I look forward to seeing you on May 9th.

Jonathan Harbourne,
Chair, Edmundsbury TRA
