Whats On (in Friars Cliff)
FCRA Officers - Admin. - Archives


Your local RA exists to ensure that the Friars Cliff area of Christchurch continues to be the warm, attractive, friendly neck of the woods that we love so much. We not only keep a look out for any developments, proposed changes or other events that might affect us but, through regular quarterly meetings and social events (Skittles, Quiz evenings, Summer outings, etc.), aspire to create a community spirit for all to enjoy.

Visit our web-site for information on local organisations, our own events, the history and geography (including maps) of Friars Cliff, details of the local infrastructure (including planning issues), a list of RA officers and other RA matters.

If you are not yet a member but would like to join, check who is your street warden (details on the website) and contact them. It only costs £2 per household per year (this is a minimum; you are welcome to give more). This entitles you to attend the quarterly meetings and to receive our quarterly newsletter – Friars Forum.

We look forward to meeting you…

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all, be you Residents, Visitors or accessing this website for the first time.

A number of issues, particularly regarding developments in our area, continue to require our attention.  These were discussed in detail at the last Quarterly Meeting, held on 1st December 2017.  For a copy of the minutes of that meeting, click here.

Of particular concern are:
1.   Local Government Reorganisation.
2.   The much increased price of the works to raise Avon Beach promenade.
3.   The costings for repairing the Zig-Zag path at Highcliffe Castle.
4.   The new application put in by the Noisy Lobster to convert the first floor flat into a function room.
5.   The development of Pine Beach Nursing Home site, where the appeal against refusal of the extended plans has been turned down.
6.   The development of the MCA site.
7.   The plans of the Life Saving Club to rebuild their clubhouse (which we generally approve).
8.   The effect that the winter charge of 50p in all carparks is causing many cars to be parked on the road.

Your webmaster is checking the latest position on all of these issues and will brinmg you further information shortly.

Meanwhile, the new(ish!) Christchurch Times continues to give its own, informed, insite into these issues. Reading it is highly recommended.
