The Sandhurst Residents Association was formed in April 1959 to provide residents of Sandhurst with a means to influence the policies of Local and National Authorities.
We include the electoral wards of: Central Sandhurst, Little Sandhurst, Wellington, Owlsmoor and College Town. The Residents' Association is not allied to any political party although we may support SRA candidates for election at Town and Borough levels.
We publish a quarterly magazine to give local information and provide a forum for residents' views and problems. The magazine is delivered free to every house in all wards of Sandhurst town and is funded by advertisements for local businesses.
The Committee was saddened to learn of the passing of John, on 22nd May in Frimley Park Hospital, having suffered 3 strokes.
He was a long standing member of the SRA committee and indeed of a number of local organisations including the Owlsmoor Community Centre, BVCT, Sandhurst Police Point and Phoenix Sequence Dance Group. John was a very private person and although not in the best of health over the last couple of years continued with his valuable contribution to the Sandhurst Community in his various roles.
He was cremated at Easthampstead Crematorium on Friday 12th June and will be greatly missed by us all.
NEXT ISSUE OF THE MAGAZINE
This won’t come as a surprise to most of you. The SRA’s Committee, meeting via email, of course, has decided that the Summer issue of the Association’s magazine will not be published. We believe that this the first issue ever to be cancelled and we decided this with regret.
The aggressive behaviour of Covid19 has influenced our decision because of the risk the virus presents to distributors, many of whom fall into the category of ‘vulnerable’ due to age or health. The risk is too great to be imposed upon this group of dedicated volunteers.Thus, the June/July/August edition will go unremarked this year. But you contributors will have a long lead-in to the Autumn edition which has a deadline of 2nd August. We are planning to be able to invite you to contribute to that one.
Hoping for your understanding.
Keep well, keep safe and keep thinking of quality copy for August.
