The trustees of Buckskin and Worting Community Association have made the hard decision to merge with another local community association.

The BWCA has struggled for years to attract residents to come forward and support the charity which has led to minimal services available and finances that only cover the cost to run the building.

BWCA trustees have approached Westside Community Association, which runs in South Ham, and have agreed to merge both charities so that the organisation has a much larger team of volunteers and dedicated staff to provide activities and services right across Buckskin and South Ham. Westside Community Centre has a vast programme of activities available to residents of South Ham and this is an exciting opportunity to extend those services to the Ridgeway Community Centre for the residents of Buckskin.

Feel free to pop into the Ridgeway for more information and please do attend the Buckskin and Worting Community Association AGM on THURSDAY 6TH JULY 2023 at 7pm to vote the proposal through.
