Who we are and what we do
The Rowney Green Association, known as the RGA, was established in 1988 for the purpose of coordinating villagers' responses to the new by-pass. It continues to look after the interests of the community, the built environment and its rural setting in accordance with its Constitution.
The RGA liaises with the Local and Highway Authorities, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Utilities and other organisations as necessary, to flag up issues potentially detrimental to the community and the environment, including strategic and local planning, road safety, refuse collection etc.
If it matters to the village it matters to the RGA !
Help Rowney Green remain the village that first attracted you
Membership of the RGA is open to all households in the Rowney Green area. Subscriptions are £4 for one year or £10 for three years.
Membership gives the right to vote at the AGM and other meetings, to offer to sit on the Executive Committee. In that way, members have a direct say in the day to day management of their neighbourhood.
Meetings are held on a bi-monthly basis at the Village Hall. All members are encouraged to attend. In between meetings you can contact Committee Members direct as follows:
Andrew May (Chair) : firstname.lastname@example.org
Jo Lewis (Vice Chair) : email@example.com
Rick Chima (Treasurer & Membership Secretary) : firstname.lastname@example.org
Sara Kitchen (Secretary) : email@example.com
Andy Dunkers : firstname.lastname@example.org
Steve Lewis : email@example.com
Committee members are elected in May each year at the Annual General Meeting. Contact the Secretary if you wish to stand or to nominate someone.
The following members of the village have offered to provide assistance if anyone in Rowney Green needs a hand. The sort of assistance might include collecting prescriptions, shopping and minor tasks around the house that just need another pair of hands.
Please contact them directly giving as much notice as possible, although we appreciate that sometimes that will not be possible.
