We are delighted to report that recruitment of Business Members of the Association has started well. Business Members are important because they provide much of the daily life and character in the town centre. The Association will support the collective voice of local businesses and organisations to ensure that their needs and expectations of Northwood are met as far as possible.

We expect that by the new year we will have a Business Members Sub-Committee with a chairperson who leads them and represents them on the Executive committee.

If you are a business that hasn’t joined yet, please do so soon using our Application Form. Not only will you get to meet and share ideas with other local businesses, but also your membership will enhance your reputation in the community.

We would ask our resident members to encourage the businesses they use to join the Association, and to support our business members with their custom – look out for the NRA Business Member sign in business windows.




Notice from the London Borough of Hillingdon:

New facilities for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) are now available at both the New Years Green Lane Civic Amenity site in Harefield and the Victoria Road Civic Amenity site in South Ruislip. Typical WEEE items include :-

  • Large domestic applications - including fridges and freezers, cookers, dishwashers, tumble dryers etc
  • Televisions
  • Computers (residents should ensure any personal data is removed before recycling their old computers)
  • Small (mixed) WEEE including radios, hair dryers, broken electrical toys etc.

Both sites are open 7 days a week from 8:00am - 4:00pm. Opening hours are extended to 6:00pm during British Summer Time. (Amenity site addresses here)

Recently the Borough has received enquiries about the provision of a Re-Use bank where residents can take unwanted household items that are too good to throw away. In response the Waste Division has recently installed a special Re-Use bank - sometimes referred to as a 'scrap store' - at the New Years Green Lane Civic Amenity site in Harefield. Items suitable for re-use include:

  • Paints - full or half tins
  • Re-usable DIY materials - windows, doors, sinks, wallpapers, paint brushes, fixtures, fittings, plumbing materials
  • Hand tools
  • Chinaware and other crockery - cups, saucers, plates, mugs, serving dishes
  • Kitchen items - cutlery, pots, pans, utensils
  • Furniture - chairs, sofas, beds, stools, tables
  • Soft furnishing - rugs, curtains, cushions, bedding
  • Garden items - gardening equipment, furniture, ornaments, tools
  • Children's toys and games
  • Bicycles - children and adult sizes
  • Sports equipment - rackets, footballs, bats
  • Musical instruments
  • Mobile phones
  • Books, Music CDs, Videos, DVDs
  • Collectables, Memorabilia

Residents are invited to sort out their unwanted goods and take them up to the Re-Use bank in Harefield (map with directions). The site is open 7 days a week from 8:00am - 4:00pm. Opening hours are extended to 6:00pm during British Summer Time.

Whilst you are there why not take the opportunity to browse through the items already delivered for re-use and help yourself to anything you like. However, please note that as this is a new initiative the bank may be rather empty to start with. Residents wishing to use the bank should park their cars in the main recycling area. Site staff will be on hand to answer any queries.

The Green belt remains intact and the housing proposal was turned down by the Planning Inspectorate - a victory for the LBH Planning department! Granted was renovation/repair of the Grade II listed building. The right of appeal via the High Court against the decision exists.

If you are concerned about road safety at a particular site the council welcomes your suggestions.
