Whats On (in Friars Cliff)
FCRA Officers - Admin. - Archives


Your local RA exists to ensure that the Friars Cliff area of Christchurch continues to be the warm, attractive, friendly neck of the woods that we love so much. We not only keep a look out for any developments, proposed changes or other events that might affect us but, through regular quarterly meetings and social events (skittles, quiz evenings, summer outings, etc.), aspire to create a community spirit for all to enjoy.

Look through this web-site for information on local organisations, our own events, the history and geography (including maps) of Friars Cliff, details of the local infrastructure (including planning issues), a list of RA officers and other RA matters.

If you are not yet a member but would like to join, check who is your street warden (details on the website) and contact them. It only costs £2 per household per year (this is a minimum; you are welcome to give more). This entitles you to attend the quarterly meetings and to receive our quarterly newsletter – Friars Forum.

We look forward to meeting you…
