Deck the CTRA Community Cart!

The CTRA Community Cart probably had its final outing of the year this week as volunteers from the Cart Steering Committee festooned it with tinsel and wheeled it down to Columbia Road for the first of this year’s Christmas Wednesdays.

Locals and passers-by were plied with hot mulled apple juice, mince pies and an opportunity to chat to residents as carol singers sang around the Christmas tree.

We’re starting to feel a little festive now!

The Cart Steering Committee is currently planning activities for Spring 2019 onward, if you would like to get involved by bringing ideas, DIY skills and/or perhaps support at some of our events, please do get in touch by emailing Jenny Dunn.

Join the CTRA Cart Steering Committee


Given that we don’t currently have a community centre, the CTRA Cart is an important asset for the community. To ensure that it is properly looked after and utilized in the community the CTRA is looking for local people to join a CTRA Cart Steering Committee.

The role of the Steering Committee will be to:

  • Plan and organize events and activities for the community with the cart
  • Manage the upkeep of the cart, help plan and/or execute small related making projects to improve or complement the cart such as a roof for the cart or a notice board
  • Oversee and facilitate the use of the CTRA Cart by other community groups

This is a fun project about bring our community together and making the most of the outdoor space we have.

Anyone with questions or wishing to join the CTRA Cart Steering Committee should email Jenny Dunn
