NEW FERRY REGENERATION ACTION GROUP BECOMES NEW FERRY RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION


01 August 2012 

At its recent Annual General Meeting on 23rd July 2012, New Ferry Regeneration Action Group (NFRAG) changed its name to New Ferry Residents Association (NeFRA). 

The change, proposed and agreed by the 26 members of the community who attended the meeting, was made to reflect the fact that the community group wanted its name/title to reflect the fact that it wants to help out where it can with all ideas/initiatives which members of the community want to pursue, such as the new New Ferry Women's Choir which is being set up by former NFRAG secretary, Sarah Spoor.

The group will now also be focussing more specifically on issues affecting New Ferry, so the decision was made and agreed that the area of its influence should be shrunk to no longer include the communities of Port Sunlight and Bromborough Pool Village.  For over ten years, the group has delivered newsletters to those two communities, but we have found these have generated little support or interest.

At the AGM, a number of the committee resigned from their roles to concentrate on other specific projects within the community which now interest them.  Amongst them are:-

  • Marian Sloane, one of the founding members of NFRAG who had been with the group since 1999.  Marian had been the group's treasurer for the last two years, and had been a huge bonus to the group with her knowledge of finance issues as we refurbished the football pavilion in the park amongst other projects.  Marian has now left NeFRA to concentrate her efforts on the committee of the Village Hall users group.

  • Sarah Spoor has resigned from the role of secretary and left NeFRA to concentrate on running the new women's choir, and is joint chair of the Friends of New Ferry Park which has seen some wonderful work achieved over the last 18 months with new benches, trees, daffodil bulbs and heather plants. 

  • Julie Fitzgerald has left her role as Vice-Chair of the group to spend more time with her family.

At the AGM, elections were held for the various positions.  Mark Anthony Craig was re-elected as Chair, and John Blainey as Treasurer.  Although other committee posts were filled, the roles of Vice-Chair and Secretary were not filled.  If anyone in the community would like to volunteer for these roles and become more involved in local community issues, please send an email to newferryonline@gmail.com or write to NeFRA, c/o New Ferry Village Hall, Longfellow Drive, Drive, New Ferry, Wirral CH62 5JS.
