Founded 1937

ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION...

Founded in 1937, the Association's objectives were established as: “to promote the well-being of the community resident in the Riddlesdown locality for such purposes as may by law be deemed to be charitable and in particular by associating the Local Authorities, voluntary organisations and residents in a common effort to further health, advance education, and to foster a community spirit for the achievement of such purposes as aforesaid.”


The Committee nowadays interprets this rather long-winded statement as a mandate to maintain and improve the Riddlesdown environment, liaising with local authorities and services.

The Association covers approximately 1,400 households from 31 roads with a membership of about 2,500 people.


2017 is our 80th anniversary. Read what was happening in the first year - 1937 Link


WHAT DOES THE RRA DO, YOU MAY ASK?


The RRA has been active since 1937 as a local community organisation. We are a non political, voluntarily run and non-profit organisation, serving 1,400 households in Riddlesdown.

Below are a few examples of our aims and achievements:



The above is just an example of what Riddlesdown residents’ get for their £3 annual membership!


Are you interested in getting more involved in your local community? New RRA members, volunteers, road stewards, sponsors and supporters are always warmly welcomed.


OUR MAGAZINE:
THE RIDDLESDOWN RECORDER

We publish this twice yearly. It is free and is usually delivered in January/February and July/August to all households, containing information and articles of interest to residents. Click here for more information.


OUR COMMITTEE

Please see details of the Committee by clicking here.


OUR ROAD STEWARDS

Delivery of the Recorder and of other material is done by our loyal and hardworking band of road stewards. They also collect the annual subscription of £3. The road stewards are recruited and organised by John Rapp, Membership Secretary. Apply to John (8660 9531) or any Committee member if you wish to join the Association. Link to Committee members


We are always in need of road stewards to replace those that unfortunately leave, or to lighten the burden of those with large patches. Please contact John if you can help.


AGM

The AGM will be held on Wednesday 11 April 2018 at 7.30pm, in St Edmund’s Church Hall, Mitchley Ave. Here the annual election of Committee members will take place (new Committee members are always welcome to stand for election) and residents are also updated on all the happenings within the area over the last year. Residents can also ask questions and raise any matter or topic. 2017 Minutes
