(TARAs) are run by local people who volunteer their time to help make their areas better for everyone living. They rely on other residents getting involved and supporting their meetings and activities. Details of our TARAs are below, get involved if you can.
Wensley TARA is there to support residents and to make Wensley a good place to live.
The TARA office at 5 Wensley Croft is open on Mondays 10.30am-12noon and Wednesdays 2.30pm-4pm every week.
The next General Meeting will be on Thursday 15th April at 2 pm in Wensley Community Centre on Hinde House Crescent. Everyone is welcome – come and get involved we will be – reviewing the Spring Clean which is happening in March, looking forward to the AGM in July, and talking about issues for the estate.
Carwood TARA are working on a new project to brighten up the estate. In May they will hold a clean up day and prepare some of the planting beds, ready to plant herbs.
The herbs will all be ones that can be used in cooking, and it’s hoped that if they become established tenants can just help themselves.
Also look out for the hanging basket day on 5th May
