Making a difference on Lower Manor estate

The Lower Manor Tenants and Residents Association (TARA) is on the hunt for a new Secretary, Vice Chair and more members to join its team.

The TARA is a group of people living on the Lower Manor area who have come together to make the community a good place to live.

The TARA works closely with local housing providers, police and community groups and meet monthly to affect positive change in the area.

The TARA is currently down to only two members and there is a real need for new members to join.

Dorothy Duroe, Treasurer at the TARA, said: “The TARA is here to help the people in the around the Lower Manor area. We try to help them in any way we can.”

“We’re looking for new members who are in good health and who are passionate about helping people. In TARA meetings people are allowed to say what they like and get their voice heard by housing providers, the police and other services around Lower Manor. It’s one of the only places you can get your voice heard.”

The group meets once a month between 6pm and 8pm on the second Tuesday of the month except August and December. Meetings are held at the MaTReC (Manor Training and Resource Centre) located on Prince of Wales Road in Sheffield.

If you are interested in getting involved then please contact 0800 027 2057.
