Batheaston Neighbourhood Group

The Batheaston Neighbourhood Group was established in March 1994 following a survey of the Village. It became clear that Batheaston had a higher than average number of elderly and infirm residents, who could not get around unaided. The need was recognised and the Batheaston Neighbourhood Group was formed.

Registered Charity No 1035152
