MEMBERS of Bradley Tenants’ and Residents’ Association looked back on a year’s activities at their annual meeting.

Highlights include nomination for the Examiner’s Community Awards and a Community First grant secured to fund children’s activities.

Information received from people who returned the TRA questionnaire has been useful in working with other agencies to enhance the community.

Residents were asked which things worry them most, with the majority of people concerned about young people hanging about, litter and rubbish left on verges, and lack of activities for young people.

From the previous year's tenant-led budget fencing has been erected round the maisonettes on Keldregate and the bungalows on Woodville Place.

More fencing round various blocks of flats has been included in this year's bid, together with a gate for the old garage site in Woodman Avenue, to stop illegal tipping.

The meeting reported that anti-social behaviour has continued to be a problem and the area was still being plagued by burglaries and vandal damage to property.

In May Betty Turner, who has been the group’s treasurer since it was formed, retired from the position.

She has been replaced by Terry Cavanagh.

In June the association held a celebration for the Queen's Golden Jubilee and the event proved to be great fun for those who attended.

The committee hope that the next year will attract more people to attend the regular monthly meetings.
