Our members & partners

The membership of AFRA is not intended to be exclusive: we have evolved as a group very naturally since a series of informal discussions in mid-2019, to become a group of like-minded people with a wide range of views, lifestyles and opinions. AFRA is non-party political – but we do state clear, shared views on key issues.

We don’t always agree on everything, but we have agreed a clear set of principles and objectives which you can see by clicking on the ‘About AFRA’ button below.

At the present time the following groups and organisations are AFRA supporters: almost all our meetings and discussions are open to visitors or observers.
Where possible, we have included links to their own websites – you can simply click and connect.

In total, our organisations represent somewhere over 6000 local residents, who deserve to be listened to.
