How We Operate

The NRA executive committee is divided into sub-committees each with responsibilities for specific areas. The sub-committees report back to the executive committee at its monthly meeting.


 

As you are aware the annual general meeting (AGM) scheduled for 23rd April 2020 was postponed due to Covid-19. Owing to the ongoing social distancing requirements, we are proposing to hold this year's AGM virtually, using the Zoom Webinar platform, a video-conferencing service. This meeting will have a very limited agenda – appointment of officers and executive committee, approval of accounts and setting of subscription for 2020.

Dear Residents,

I sincerely hope that you are all well and successfully surviving the lockdown.

I thought that you would like to know that the NRA committee is still functioning and working on your behalf. For example,

We were alerted to the damage to the NRA bench in Rowland Place, but before we could contact the council a public-spirited Northwood Resident had already done so. Many thanks to Cllr Melvin for being so quick off the mark in submitting a Member's Enquiry. Not only that, council contractors were on-site within hours, damage assessed, and repairs in hand at their workshop – so thanks also to Hillingdon Council for their speedy response.

  

The NRA committee hopes that Northwood residents are pleased with their new clock on the corner of Green Lane and Maxwell Road. The idea of having a clock was first mooted at our AGM in 2015 when we discussed ways in which we could celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Association's foundation on 9th February 1966. By the 2016 AGM, the committee had decided on a commemorative clock, we just needed to find a suitable site. Members voted and agreed on the final site, they also approved spending up to £4,500 from funds.

Applications are invited from individuals or companies to maintain our existing website and database and to provide onward development.

Thanks to all who turned out in the rather damp conditions on Thursday 19th December 2019. Led by Emma Brown, the NRA committee served mulled wine and nibbles to all who came along while Rev Ann Lynes from Holy Trinty Church encouraged us to join in the carol singing.
