About Wensum Residents’ Association
We aim to improve life for local residents in the west of Norwich. We hope to do this in two main ways:
- Maintaining and managing the Wensum Community Centre on Hotblack Road for the benefit of all users and groups in the local community.
- Improving the local environment for residents by making improvements to local facilities and organising events for the community. We can also represent residents’ concerns to bodies and services such as the police or local councils.
We represent people living in the following two areas of Norwich:
- The triangle of Dereham Road, Waterworks Road and Old Palace Road
- The triangle of Guardian Road, Bowthorpe Road and Dereham Road
This map gives you a rough idea of the borders, but do bear in mind we’re not too strict about it!
We are a democratic voluntary organisation. No members get paid for the work they do for the Association. Membership of the Residents’ Association is open to anyone who lives in the local area.
Meetings take place once a month at the Wensum Community Centre on weekday evenings, starting at 7.30pm. For a full list of dates for 2018, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other ways to get involved
Even if you can’t make it to meetings, you can support the Residents’ Association in other ways. We may need volunteers to help with or organise future events. Another good way to get involved is through the Wensum Social Club. There is more information on this website about current groups and activities at the club – click on the menu for more details.
