Canbury And Riverside Association (CARA) is a non-political and purely voluntary organisation whose aims and objectives are the protection and enhancement of amenities within the area bordered by Richmond Road to the east, Lower Kings Road and Canbury Place to the south, the River Thames to the west and Hawker Leisure Centre to the north. CARA campaigns on key issues facing residents and users in this area. 

Join CARA for just £5 a year to help support our objectives - the more members we have the louder our voice. Subscriptions help us keep residents in the CARA area and members from outside the area informed on local matters. Membership and subscription arrangements are changing, to comply with the Charity Commission's requirements as we expect that CARA will be given charitable status in the near future. Click here for the membership form to be used from September 2017.
