About  Addlestone  Community  Association

 

Addlestone Community Centre, Garfield Road, Addlestone, KT15 2NJ   ( 01932 843646

Founded 1948. Registered Charity No. 304962

 

 

 

The Addlestone Community Association (ACA) was formed in 1948 and the Community Centre in Station Road was opened in 1968, it was replaced by our current Centre in Garfield Road in September 2005. The Association is administered by a General Committee which elects an Executive Committee to run the Centre and manage the affairs of the Association on a day to day basis. It is also responsible for planning the maintenance of the Centre, obtaining estimates for any necessary work, and overseeing the running of the Sections and giving advice as required.

The Executive reports back to the General Committee  at meetings which occur quarterly.

 

The REGULAR ACTIVITIES  of the Association are organised by the Entertainments Committee, together with the various Sections. Additionally there are many local groups that are AFFILIATED  to the Association. The interests of the sections range from Stamp Collecting to Keep Fit, and they meet at the Centre on various days of the week .

 

The SECTIONS   in their turn report to both the Executive and the General Committees on their affairs. They support the running of the Centre with a financial contribution each year. Each Section raises the monies for their contribution in many different ways, including subscriptions from their Section membership, raffles, dances, shows, etc. Other funds come from public hire of the halls, public entertainment, Addlestone Arts Festival, 200 Club and Grant Aid, which has to be applied for each year from Runnymede Borough Council.

It is a condition that members of sections must be members of the Association.

 

All members of the Executive and the General Committee are volunteers, as are members of the committees and the officers of the Sections. They spend a great deal of time and effort ensuring that the Association runs smoothly.

 

 

The 200 Club  is a monthly competition run by the ACA for its Members and as a support to its fund raising activities. It has a monthly prize draw with a first prize and three second prizes. These depend on the total membership subscription of the Club, being 25% and 8% of the monthly subscriptions respectively. The prizes are currently about £20 and £6.40.

There is an annual Christmas bonus prize of £75.  The cost is £1 per month.

 

As well as activities at the Centre, the Entertainments Committee organise an annual programme of  

DAY TRIPS BY COACH   and short breaks.

 

Members of the Association are able to participate in all the activities, and are welcome to stand for election to the Committees. New blood and fresh ideas are always sought to ensure that the Association can continue to fulfil its objective of providing a service to our local Community.

 

A bi–monthly news magazine "THE ADDLESTONIAN"   is published and distributed

to more than 800 ACA Members.
