FCRA exists to connect local residents and provide a forum for discussion and collection of views about the area in which we live. Our aim is to have constructive dialogue with those involved in governance, development and upkeep of this friendly and attractive neck of the woods that we love so much.
We keep a lookout for any developments, proposed changes or other events that might affect us. Through regular quarterly meetings and social events, we aspire to create a community spirit for all to enjoy.
FCRA is a voluntary organisation, has officers appointed each year at the AGM and manages a network of volunteer Road Wardens. There are no paid positions.
We ask residents to contribute £2 per household per year as a minimum. Check with your neighbours or the Forum that is delivered quarterly by your Road Warden. You can pay by Cash, cheque or BACS. Contributions are part of our audited accounts and cover website, meeting rooms and ad hoc prinitng costs. We also offer small donations to local causes.
What we do
Through our quarterly publication, Friars Forum, our website, committee meetings and open meetings we endeavour to:
- Sustain a strong community spirit and sense of neighbourhood, with residents knowing and supporting each other
- Maintain open and clear communication and good relations with stakeholders
- Contribute to improving the environment with well-kept, safe communal areas
- Share our pride in the location and our beach front
- Undertake and contribute to relevant consultations

Quarterly Open Meetings
Each quarter we hold an open meeting with updates from our local councillors, council officers, police and often a speaker. Topical discussions help to gather resident’s views and contribute to consultations. Meetings are held at 7:30pm in All Saint’s Church Hall, Mudeford.
Paul Hilliard and Lesley Dedman are the elected representatives for Friars Cliff and Mudeford on BCP Council. Councillor’s Surgeries are held prior to FCRA public meetings. You may also contact them directly by email.
