Welcome to the Dukeries!

Let us introduce ourselves...

The Dukeries Area Residents' Association is a non-political organisation established to represent the needs and interests of the residents of the area known as "the Dukeries", and on occasion the needs of people, businesses or organisations whose interests intersect with those of the Dukeries residents. This site is here to keep you informed about the activities of the association, and about more general news and forthcoming events in the area that residents and visitors might be interested in.

The news page will tell you what has been happening in the association and the Dukeries area. The events page contains information about public meetings, and more leisurely events coming to our area. The contacts page is your means of getting in touch with us. The information page contains general information about the area, and the links page has links to other organisations.
