Welcome to the website of the Birdwood Area Residents' Association (BARA)
Breaking news. New bus woes. No direct bus link to Addenbrooke's from 9 September until early Summer.
The Birdwood Area Residents' Association was formed to promote neighbourliness and a sense of community and to form a conduit to the City and County councils about issues related to this area.
We cover Birdwood Road and all roads leading off it:
Birdwood Road; Tiverton Way; Ancaster Way; Trevone Place; Britten Place; Robert May Close; Teynham Close; Budleigh Close; Taunton Close; The Spinney; Chalmers Road; Gray Road; Ward Road; St Thomas's Road; St Thomas's Square.
If you think there is a general problem for the area, do contact us. We'd also love to hear from you if you have any ideas for future events or anything to increase neighbourliness. If you prefer, you can put a note through the door at 52 Birdwood Road.
Our email list is growing. Contact us and tell us your address and email and we'll stop sending you a paper copy of our newsletter. You'll receive our newsletter electronically and occasionally some emails that are time sensitive but we keep these to a minimum. Your data will be safely stored and will not be given to anybody else.
For those who are not keen on technology we have two noticeboards in the area. If you'd like to add something to them post them through the door at 52 Birdwood Road.
The Community Library has temporarily vanished until we can find a new home for it (BT took their phone box away).
We had a new one ready to go but it was stolen so we're searching for a replacement.
