Your representatives in Jericho

The Jericho Community Association (JCA) has five main tasks:

  • To administer the Jericho Community Centre
  • To establish a new community centre on the canalside site
  • To represent Jericho residents on local issues such as planning
  • To organize local events such as the annual Street Fair
  • To keep residents aware of local concerns

The JCA is a charitable incorporated organisation. Registered Charity No. 1168203

The Association is open to anyone who lives in Jericho and everyone is welcome to come to most of the monthly meetings which are held at the Community Centre on the second Monday of most months at 8.00 p.m.

The 2018 AGM was held on 16 April at St Barnabas School. The meeting considered the minutes of the previous year, the annual accounts and the report from Sue Pead, our administrator as well as brief reports from our chair, Anne Mobbs of the Alive and Kicking group, and Phyllis Starkey of the Jericho Wharf Trust.

The officers elected were:

Chair: Charlotte Christie (Canal Street)
Secretary: Jenny Mann (Victor Street)
Vice-chair: Henry Gibbon (Furnace House)
Treasurer: Peter Stalker (Cranham Street)

The other committee members elected were: Margaret Adams, John Crabtree, Scott Ellis, Hoonie Feltham, Zoe Guy, Joelle Mann, and Phyllis Starkey,

The meeting also included a presentation bv Brenda Boardman and Alison Hill, of Low Carbon Oxford North, who talked about initiatives on renewable energy, energy efficiency, food and transport.

===================================================

For the past 15 years the JCA has been working towards establishing a new community centre on the vacant canalside site.

For this purpose, we have joined forces with three other other local organizations to form the Jericho Wharf Trust. They are St. Barnabas Church, the Jericho Living Heritage Trust, and the Jericho Community Boatyard.
