Community Events

  1. Rooksdown Community Association (reg charity number 1142688) has decided to start the process of converting to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).

    This process is approved and overseen by the charities commission and ensures that all liabilities and assets are transferred to the new CIO.

    A new CIO charity has been created with the same name and exactly the same charitable objectives but a new charity number 1174526.

    Over the coming months a process will be conducted to wind up the old charity and move everything to the new one.

    Residents should experience no change during this process.
  2. Why not sign up to the facebook group for The Spinney.

    This piece of woodland around the old Park Prewett Hospital site offers a great circular walk. Funding has been secured to improve the signage and access for the future and updates for this project

    The facebook group will update you on events and developments to improve this space for the community.
