URGENT APPEAL TO HGRA
In recent months Hindley Green Residents Association has lost
three of its Committee members through sickness.
One of these was our long serving Secretary, who has had to step
down from the position through illness.
HGRA has been running now for 10 years as a constituted
Association and we have seen some great projects completed over
The Committee has been made up mostly of elderly
people and there is a great need for younger people to take part.
The position that HGRA find itself in at this time, is a declining
Committee and less and less people attending general meetings.
To function in the best possible way, more dedicated
members are desperately needed.
The main position is of course a committed Secretary and
replacement Committee members.
There are over 5000 voters in Hindley Green, of
these HGRA have approx 250 residents on its membership list.
However the general meeting sees only about 20 or less members
each month and only a handful of these are active members.
Unfortunately the Association is in danger of having
to disband, unless things change.
The HGRA Committee urge its members to step forward
and be part of the Association that is working for the benefit
of all the residents of Hindley Green.
people who want to improve their neighbourhood or local environment
often start a Residents Association.

Patient Participation Group
Patient Participation Group (PPG) is normally made of practice
staff and patients that are representative of the practice population.
In some cases, the PPG could be facilitated by patients with no
practice involvement. The main aim of the PPG is to ensure that
patients are involved in decisions about the range and quality
of services provided and, over time, commissioned by the practice.
Using the PPG, GP practices are encouraged to promote the proactive
engagement of patients and to seek views from practice patients
through the use of local practice surveys. The outcomes of the
engagement and the views of patients are published below if this
practice has a PPG.
If you are interested in becoming involved in this group. Please
