Tuesday, 12th December - Despite the snow and ice, there was a spectacular turnout for the Coffee morning, with 41 of us turning up for a freebie coffee and mince pie (Many thanks to Hilltop for cutting us a good deal to enable us to do this!). Instead, we ran a raffle with all the proceeds being donated to Margaret Payne's favourite Charity - Cancer Research, and we raised a staggering £105, so a big thank you to everyone for their generousity.
NB - Just 13 more squares to be sold on the WiB & Alexia Grid, before we draw for the £50 prize.
Monday, 11th December - Reminder re the last Coffee morning of the year at Hilltop - why not join us for a Merry Mince Pie?
We are currently conducting a survey amongst residents regarding feelings about our proposed future projects as part of support for any grant applications we submit to Funding bodies. Please find below the link to the survey form, which you can download & scan to return by e-mail - many thanks for your help.

Weeley Residents Association A.G.M. Saturday 24th March 2018
Followed by Bingo!
Sunday, 3rd December Concert at
St Andrew’s Church - an outstanding success, with nearly 100 people attending what was a thoroughly enjoyable and fun concert, really getting us all well into the Christmas spirit. Lots of parking was required, the raffle went well, and once the choir was paid and WRA took a small amount to cover expenses, the remaining proceeds are helping St Andrews Church funds.
27th November - We have today written to Network Rail for an explanation regarding Weeley Station, as no-one seems to be getting anywhere. A copy of our letter is attached here. Network Rail complaint
25th November - What can I say - a fantastic evening had by all (bar a slight contratemps over calls which we hope to iron out by the next Bingo evening) and we made over £300 towards funds which is brilliant - so thank you to everyone who came along, helped, contributed and had fun. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did. A few photos of the evening -
Over sixty residents, friends and relations came along to support the event
The splendid array of raffle prizes (thank you so much all those who gave so generously)
20th November - A good turn out of residents for the monthly litter pick, and welcome to our newest recruit who turned up this morning despite the damp and cold. Another 10+ bags of litter collected so well done everyone.
14th November - Another very well attended coffee morning, and we were pleased to welcome a few new members. Lots of chatter and socialising with a free raffle prize. We thank Les Davis, the Community Fire Officer, who went round and spoke to everyone - he was very pleased that he found 9 people who wished to receive a visit from him to check their appliances etc. Thanks to everyone who attended, and those who sent their apologies.
11th November - Just a heads up that a representative from the Fire Service will hopefully be attending our coffee morning this coming Tuesday, looking forward to seeing old and new friends there. Also, please bring your money to pay for your bookings for the Bingo/Fish and Chip Supper on the 25th November, thanks. Looks like there will be more than 50 people attending this one!!
5th November - Please look at the problems page, as we are pressing for urgent action from Essex County Council regarding the condition of pavements in the area, and also the fact that the lights on the roundabouts are almost non-existent and have been for months. If anyone feels that their pavements are bad, then please log them with Essex County Council again even if you have reported them before.
