The BCCA was formed in the 1980s as a voice for the community in matters of concern to all and as an organiser of events for the community. It has its own constitution.
Meetings are held about four times a year and are open to everyone living in the area or with an interest in Barthol Chapel, including young people. A small committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting (held in early September). (See contacts page).
The BCCA is involved in a number of activities, such as:
• sharing Information on news and events for the community.
• promoting clubs & fund-raising events for all e.g. burns’ suppers, concerts, sports’ days etc...
• enhancing community stewardship & sustainability.
• improving the village & surrounds e.g. planting daffodils, planting trees, flower tubs in the summer, & trimming hedgerows for safer driving.
The BCCA also acts as a forum for discussion of matters of general interest e.g. planning, schooling and other community associations.
