Core few continue community group
THERE is a light at the end of the tunnel for the Pottsville Community Association.
Members of the association had previously feared dwindling numbers and a lack of community support could spell the end for the group.
However, past president and current casual secretary of the Pottsville Community Association Mike Wells said community support was improving.
“We held a meeting on Tuesday night and the number of people who attended was slightly more positive,” Mr Wells said.
“We have sent out letters to the financial members of Pottsville to let them know of the situation, but we are still having a problem with youth not joining.
“But there is a glimmer of hope. At the meeting we had three people who said they would not let the association fold.”
Mr Wells said nominations for new members would be called for at the next annual general meeting which is to be held on July 27.
“We hope by the time we hold the annual general meeting that we will have enough members to con- tinue,” Mr Wells said.
“It is important that the association continues; it is an important voice for the community.”
Mr Wells said all residents were welcome to join the association.
