The Association

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.


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.

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,

If you happened to be in Green Lane on Saturday 7th September around midday, you would have seen two gazebos erected near the War Memorial. The blue gazebo was occupied by the Northwood Safer Neighbourhoods Team giving crime prevention advice, whilst the green one housed members of the NRA Executive Committee handing our light refreshments to passers-by. By all accounts it was a great community event with plenty of shoppers stopping for a chat, a number of whom asked when we would be popping up again - watch this space!

Thanks to committee member Emma Brown who masterminded the event.
