The Templar’s Community Association was founded in 1984. Founding members were Stella Tilson, Frank Joy, June Richardson, Roy Popper, Brian Fribbens, Jean Drake and Frank Moffat. They arranged events from Cockney nights, to trips to the panto for the kids.
The association has always worked hard with different people on the estate pitching in to help with campaigns such a getting a decent play area and basketball court for the kids, having our own litter pickers (the only estate to have this agreement in place with BDC) keeping the lights on at night to feel safe (the only estate that has this in the area).
More recent members have included Valarie Ahern, Neil Coughlan, and Carol and Lee Martin.
