We have a number of groups focussed on specific local issues that meet under the SRA umbrella, each chaired by a member of Sopwell Residents Association. If you are interested in finding out more or potentially joining an SRA group, please get in touch by emailing us here. There are three main groups:

Sopwell eco-stars who work to build community resiliance in the face of climate change and environmental crises.

Events Group – who organise the annual community festival the Cottonmill Gathering and various other groups e.g. Quiz Nights; Autumn Festival and more.

The Cottonmill and Sopwell Hub group which campaigned successfully over 6 years to get the Cottonmill Community and Cycling Centre built – and now attend the regular Council Forum meetings as a regular user and interested party.

Sopwell Litter Pickers – who organise regular litter picks around the ward.
