The HEXTHORPE TARA CLOSES

The Hexthorpe Tenants and Residents Association has held its last meeting. It was decided to close at a meeting held on 22th November. It was felt that it had run its course. Numbers have declined over recent years and it was becoming burdensome for the faithful few to continue. There was a sadness, tempered with a relief, for those present. The TARA has been meeting for some 20 years. It used to be a thriving association, well supported by some local people and also by local councillors and officers. Important local issues have been raised and discussed. The officers both past and present were thanked for their dedicated work, without them there would have been no TARA  at all. The funds are to be distributed to local charities as decided by the meeting.
