THE Beeliar Resident Advancement Group (BRAG) is being re¬formed, with an annual general meeting to be held this month.

Beeliar resident Trace Radcliffe is behind the push to get the group back up and running for the first time in two years.

Ms Radcliffe, a former BRAG committee member and current treasurer of the Yangebup Pro-gress Association, has nominated herself for BRAG president.

Positions should be decided when the AGM is held on March 20 at the Beeliar Community Centre.

“I am definitely confident the group will make a difference. It did before and it will again,” Ms Radcliffe said.

“There is a great deal of sup¬port around and we will continue to build relationships and engage the local community to keep it going for many years.”

Ms Radcliffe said a survey of Beeliar residents found locals were keen to see litter in the suburb controlled, additional community events, a dedicated dog park with agility equipment and an active neighbourhood watch.

She encouraged others in the suburb, which has more than 8700 residents, to get involved.

“The more people we have involved the better community we build,” she said.

“I hope we get a brilliant committee together, address some formalities with the constitution and get the ball rolling for a great year ahead.”
