What is OBRA?
Old Bassett Residents Association (OBRA) has simple aims:
Anything from community news and issues to crime prevention, planning applications to our own special events. OBRA wants to enhance the quality of life we enjoy in our area, influence change and give you a voice in your community. We have been involved in local issues since 2002, sometimes in conjunction with neighbouring Residents’ associations. We maintain close links with our City Councillors, Local MP and local Police Beat Officers. More….
