The report of the inaugural meetiing:

I’m delighted to be writing for the first edition of The Bugle about the recently formed Burton Community Association, which aims to improve the experience of living in Burton through fostering a sense of community and pride in the village.

This might take the form of: promoting networks such as the new parenting club or the book club (see page 4 for further details); organising regular events; backing appeals for village facilities; or simply planting grass verges with bulbs. The important thing is that it should support what villagers want for their village.

BCA was launched with an informal gathering at the Old House @ Home attended by some 30 villagers who identified their priorities for the village, including a children’s play area, Burton in Bloom, community social events, and allotments. Each of these priorities has been assigned a champion and support team, but more help is still needed. Future Bugle issues will include updates.

BCA , now with about 50 members, will be holding its next meeting for everyone in the village at the Old House @ Home on Monday, May 12, 2014, starting at 7.30pm. Please come.

Amanda Read, First Chair of BCA
