London Borough of Hillingdon are keen to recruit more Street Champions in the Northwood area. Street Champions are volunteers who act as the eyes and ears of the local community to help make a real difference to their local area. As a Street Champion you can do as little or as much as you like, and can simply report issues as you go about your everyday life. For more details, and how to join the scheme, click on the following link: www.hillingdon.gov.uk/streetchampions

NRA now has its very own notice board at Waitrose and it can be found to the left of the car park entrance door.
We are hoping it will be especially useful for those residents who don’t have internet access to our website. We are very grateful to Waitrose for donating it.

Three Valleys Water are to renew the water mains in Rickmansworth Road from 23 March onwards, for a period of about 6 months. Some of the work will be carried out under 2-way traffic lights, apart from the junction of Ducks Hill Road/Rickmansworth Road, which will be carried out under 3-way lights.

The mains renewal will run from the Kewferry Drive junction to the junction with Maxwell Road.

At last the two controversial BT phone kiosks/advertising boards in Green Lane by the war memorial have been moved following 18 months of campaigning by NRA. They were erected without warning in the autumn of 2007, and we felt that they were totally inappropriate in a position so near to the war memorial and circular bench.

Before...

... and now

We now have a nice open area again, which is enhanced by the new paving and newly-refurbished memorial and bench.

The two kiosks have been placed in separate locations at each end of the Green Lane shopping area where they are less obtrusive.

We are most grateful to our local councillors and council officers for their hard work on behalf of the residents to persuade BT that they should be moved, and of course to BT and JC Decaux for such a satisfactory outcome.
