About the Winkton Residents Association (WRA)

These pages are maintained by the  Winkton (including Holfleet & Bockhampton) residents association and are intended for the use of all residents in the Winkton area.  The WRA has a committee which works for the local residents primarily addressing issues of local concern.    The committee meets periodically to discuss those issues, decide on actions to be undertaken and report on progress.  A periodic newsletter is also circulated to residents and is also available on this site.    Social events occur occasionally during the year offering a valuable opportunity to meet/catch up with your neighbours, discuss issues and, above all, have some fun.   A small annual contribution (£2) towards the running costs of the WRA is appreciated.
