Interests

Balance

We also seek to see that a balance between economic activity and village life is fairly maintained and reasonably accessible to all, in so doing preserving and enhancing the nature of Bathurst as a rural village.

Support

The BR&RA is entirely manned by volunteers from the community and relies on the support of other volunteers.for the successful completion of projects
