Some publications may contain a Virgin Media email address for the SRA. We reported a problem with it to Virgin Media in March 2014. After five months of effort on our part, they proved incapable of giving it a high enough priority to enable a fixed. As a result, we had no choice but to change our email address to the one above. Emails sent via the old Virgin Media address will automatically forward to the outlook address.

Charter

Shaw Residents’ Association (SRA) was established to provide a forum for the residents of the Shaw Electoral Ward* to work with statutory authorities, voluntary organizations, businesses etc. to protect and improve the environment and facilities for residents.

Activities

This has involved members working and many issues, such as: ensuring the Post Office in Shaw Village remains open, working with Swindon Borough Council for the provision of a community hall in Shaw Village, campaigning for safe routes to school, lobbying to save Shaw Forest from development, assisting in charitable events such as the West Swindon Open gardens, running regular litter picks, fighting hard to stop the Ridgeway farm development from taking place (now constructively working with the developer, community and council officials to minimise its impact on existing residents) and lobbying SBC to get the trunk road from Thamesdown Drive to B&Q funded.

Membership

The SRA is a voluntary organisation. Membership is open to anyone. Membership of the SRA requires compliance with its constitution and standing orders. Copies of which can be found here:

Standing Orders

Marketing

We use many techniques to create awareness of our work within the community, for example: we email newsletters to several hundred addresses (see bottom of page), the Link magazine and other local media often run stories or quotes from the SRA and we make posters available wherever possible
