New Committee Members and helpers needed for WURA

WURA urgently needs the following:- 

1. Someone to take over running our website, ideally someone who has experience with WordPress.

2. Someone to deal with developer planning applications for WURA. 

3. Someone to  help with road maintenance, road contractors and keeping Welcomes and Uplands Road free of litter, overhanging hedges or dangerous trees that may obstruct our roads.

We have some members, who probably do not wish to be named, who already pick litter and sweep up gravel carried by flood water and we are very grateful for what they do. If you care about the local environment  and you can help in this way you do not have to join the Committee. However as a Committee member you may be able to get more done. There are usually only 2 Committee meetings a year plus the AGM. 

If you are interested please contact WURA by emailing .

You do not have to live in Welcomes or Uplands Road to apply. So if you know of a non member who might be suitable, please let us know.

   In terms of para 4.3 of the Constitution

‘actions agreed by a simple majority of those attending a General Meeting will bind all    residents’

Voting at general meetings shall be on the basis of one vote per person present at the meeting providing that no more than two votes are registered for each property frontaging Welcomes and Uplands Roads or their spur roads’ Members in arrears with their road levy do  not have  voting rights.

The member for Uplands Road is not standing for re-election. The Road Committee therefore invite a member to stand for election at the AGM with a view to looking after the interests of Uplands Road members. Please contact the Chairman before the AGM if you are interested in joining the Road Committee.
