Join The Residents

Tonight is the Worcester Park Residents' Association's Annual General Meeting (or The WPRA AGM for those who like acronyms). The WPRA has been around since 1996 and was formed in order to oppose the building of a supermarket which has more or less morphed into the Waitrose we now all know and love (or love to hate).

It was the WPRA which coordinated the fight against the Mosque proposal under the chairmanship of (now councillor) Arthur Hookway (and then Hughie Byrne) and previously the fight against expansion of the Hamptons under the chairmanship of Ian Elvey.

Tonight is your opportunity, dear reader, to come along to our meeting, to see, hear and even influence the future direction of the WPRA, and the sorts of issues we tackle in the future. Last year I was asked to be the deputy chair of the WPRA, and being that our chair Hughie Byrne is not available, I will be chairing the meeting in his place.

The meeting is being held at Christ Church with St Philip, Corner of Cheam Common Road and Ruskin Drive, KT4 8LG and begins at 7:30pm. So if you are at a loose end this evening, care about your local community and want to have your say or just find out a little more, please come along, join up (for just £1 per household) and be part of the Worcester Park voice.
