The Talley Community Amenity Association (TCAA) is a charitable limited liability company registered at Companies House and with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. It exists to promote facilities for recreation and leisure activities for the benefit of the inhabitants of the parish of Talley, particularly the provision of public amenities and public woodland. The Association is run in accordance with its “Articles of Association” by a team of Trustees. These are elected from among the members at the Annual General Meeting held each September. The Trustees hold regular meetings, to which all members are invited. Although only Trustees may vote at these meetings, members are free to speak and raise any concerns they may have or any other relevant topic they consider worthy of consideration by the Trustees.
Any local resident may apply to become a member. Residents may become an Individual Member or a Member representing an organisation to which they belong. Many local organisations are represented among the membership, including Capel Esgairnant, Cymdeithas Cwmdu, FUW, the Luncheon Club, Providence Chapel, St Michael’s Church, Talley CP School, Talley History Society and Talley Tigers. If YOU want to see improved leisure facilities provided for Talley, why not join us? Membership is free and all we ask is that you support the Officers and other Trustees by attending the Annual General Meeting and as many other meetings as you are able, as well as enjoying the facilities that TCAA provides.

Current Plans for the three main projects are outlined below –
Talley Woodlands. Thinning work by the Forestry Commission has been completed and all signposted routes are free to roam. Children from the school have been active making bird boxes and will soon be attached to selected trees in advance of the Fun day in July.
Community Website. TCAA now owns two website addresses – www.talley.org.uk and www.talyllychau.org.uk – both of which will be developed in the coming months. It is intended that one should be in English and the other in Welsh. Members of local clubs and organisations are encouraged to contribute to the website content.
