Welcome to SPJARA!

WHO WE ARE*
SPJARA is the Residents' Association that covers the roads and streets of Cheltenham shown on the map below. The name SPJARA comes from St. Philip and James Church which lies at the centre of our area. However, we have no formal link to the church.
Why not join SPJARA? It's just £5.
We look forward to meeting you soon

The Bath Road - keeping it great
We love the Bath Road and its shops, cafes and pubs. We have worked with other community groups to brighten it up with decorated utility boxes, trees, planters and more .... (you can read more here)
But it's all too hand to mouth. We want the council to lead and not leave it to community groups. We want to work with the traders. And we want a reliable source of funds to keep the Bath Road looking great.
So we working on two initiatives:
- we are pressing the Council to estalblish a Bath Road partnership
- Hugh Curran is asking the banks and supermarkets to help support the painting of boxes etc. in future.
We'll keep you posted. Meanwhile, please keep using the facilities in the Bath Road and send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
coming up locally ......
