The Association

The Community Association

The Association exists to promote the well-being of the residents of Gateside and the surrounding district and to promote a community spirit among the residents.  

The Association was formed in 1946 and the Memorial Hall was made over to the Trustees of the Association.   One of the Association's most important functions is to continue to manage and maintain the Gateside Memorial Hall and to promote its use for the benefit of all residents.  

The Association's constitution is available for reading or downloading here.
