THE Beeliar Residents Advancement Group (BRAG) is officially back for the first time in two years.
An annual general meeting was held at the Beeliar Community Centre on March 20 to fill positions on the re-formed committee.
BRAG president Trace Radcliffe said it was an exciting time.
“We will get a committee meeting happening and brainstorm ways of improving what we have around us,” she said.
“Our priority would be to create pathways of communication to council, local schools, businesses and, most importantly, the community.
“As a team we can make a huge difference in our suburb and if we are all supporting each other, there is no reason that can’t happen.”
Ms Radcliffe said support from the community had been immense, with a full committee of eight and two additional support co-ordinators on board.
“I had no idea how many people to expect, considering BRAG closed (two years ago) due to lack of support,” she said.
“We had about 45 people come along and that was fantastic.
“It was great seeing people flow through the door and showed us Beeliar Residents wanted BRAG back.”
