Why should you support the Trust?:

Most of us take every day life for granted and only get annoyed when our daily routine is upset by events over which we, as individuals, have little or no control. Bureaucracy, by definition, has little regard for the individual as in this context the bureaucrats divide and conquer. Organisations such as the Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust, provided we have the numbers, can make a real difference.

By weight of public opinion, matters affecting the quality of life of our community can be advocated for and, with a range of local professional acumen, achieve a better quality result for our residents' amenity and our bushland ambience. If you have lived in Beecroft Cheltenham for any length of time, you would have seen many changes, both good and bad... You may be a new resident, attracted to Beecroft Cheltenham by its tree lined streets, its village atmosphere, its charm and schools with enviable reputations.

Help us to keep it that way. Join the Trust and let your voice be heard!

Household Membership: $20 yearly; Pensioner/Single Resident: $10 yearly.
