ROAR 100 Club

In 2014 it was agreed that membership of ROAR would be free and all owners and long term residents (6 months or more) would automatically become members.  In order to cover the expenses of ROAR, the 100 Club was set up whereby half the proceeds is given in prizes, drawn quarterly and any excess profits would be used on improving the estate environment to which so far we have been able to donate over £5000 primarily for the planting of trees, hedging etc.  therefore benefitting us all.

Winners of the latest draw made in December were:

1st: Adrian and Lynn Littler £183
2nd: Paul Cleaver £122
3rd: Mike and Mary Hansell £61

The more that join in the more in prizes and profit.  

Application for  the 100 Club
