Welcome to the web presence of the Braeside and Mannofield Community Council.
Community Councils are statutory bodies, set up by an Act of Parliament. Their term of office is 3 years and they receive an annual grant from the City Council.
They have no executive powers although being close to and part of the local community they play a vital role in representing the views of the community to local authorities and other public bodies.
Anyone who lives within the Community Council area and whose name is on the electoral roll can be nominated or apply to become a Community Councillor.
There are also places for young people aged 16 and 17 years and other co-options are allowed.
The Braeside and Mannofield Community Council has an upper limit of 12 members.

Community Choir - Interested?

The Community Council is working with the West Locality Leadership Group in establishing the feasibility of forming a Community Choir in the area. The formation of a choir will have a number of benefits to individuals and the community as a whole.

There are known therapeutic advantages in certain illness to exposure to music, involvement could relieve loneliness and that a multi-cultural, multi-aged involvement would be very positive within the community. 

Work is already ongoing to secure the services of a choir master and meeting venue, however, there is a need, before progressing further to gauge the support for forming a choir.  There is little point in going ahead if there is not the numbers.

You don't need to be the next winner of the X Factor or Britain's got Talent, you just need to be enthusiastic (holding a note would be useful of course).

With this in mind, there will be a meeting at the Airyhall Library on 10th April at 6.30pm, to gauge interest.   If at all interested as a choir member, a musician or just to help out with teas and coffees, why not come along to the Library and let us know.
