Who are we?
The Whyke Residents Association (WRA) was formed in 1983, to campaign on issues that affected local residents. Our aim is to enable residents to develop and improve facilities for the community at work, rest or play.
What do we do?
We work with the Councils and other organisations to improve facilities for the residents. The current projects are the improvements to pedestrian bridges over the railway, and the approach routes to the new Whyke roundabout Pedestrian/cycle Bridge on the A27 which we had campaigned for.
We are also working on plans for the enhancement of the Amphitheatre site. Alongside these activities, we maintain flowerbeds and some of the planters on street corners and keep a close eye on the state of our streets and trees.
If you are not a member already, why don’t you join the WRA?
You are welcome to join the residents association, if you live in the area bounded by Market Avenue, The Hornet, Whyke Road, including residential roads to the east; and the A27 in the south. (See here for map)
The membership brings many advantages – advice on any dealings with your local councillors and local councils; support for issues and ideas which you wish to see actioned, and the opportunity to be active in improving your neighbourhood.
