Committee members are ordinary tenants and residents living in the CTRA area and are asked to attend around 5 committee meetings a year. If you want to get involved in improving where we live and/or representing residents’ interests to local authorities, including THH this is your opportunity.

Two years after our last AGM, the Columbia TRA was able to hold their AGM in person on Tuesday 19 October 2021. Despite unexpected disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the outgoing committee was able to deliver a report covering a great deal of activity from the last two years.
Community gardening has blossomed during the pandemic as a great many residents have taken the opportunity to get outside during lock downs and improve our communal spaces whilst getting some exercise. Members of the TRA were also able to arrange a community picnic and a beano to Margate in the summer months.
The report covered efforts to improve services to our estates in areas like waste management, anti-social behaviour and major works.
Chair of the CTRA, Kevin McKenna thanked outgoing committee members for their efforts over the past years and called for residents to volunteer this year. He said “As ever, the CTRA is led by volunteers, doing what they can to help the community in their spare time. The only way that more can be done, is if more people get actively involved, in whatever capacity they can. That is why the AGM is so important as it gives the opportunity for more people to join the committee and help. Hopefully several more of you will volunteer this year and if you have a special project, or something you’d like to see happen more urgently, then this is your opportunity to take part.”
