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.


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.

Northwood Residents' Association Annual General Meeting was held
on Thursday 11th April 2019
at Northwood Methodist Church, Oaklands Gate

There was an excellent attendance at this the 53rd AGM of the NRA with around 160 residents as well as invited guests and members of the committee present.

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.

At the end of 2018 we invited residents to nominate their good neighbours, people who help to promote a sense of community by performing small acts of kindness. We received a number of nominations,

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.













The NRA committee had great fun on Thursday 13th December. They set up a gazebo in the town centre and dispensed festive cheer in the form of mulled wine and mince pies to passing commuters scurrying on their way home. Members of Holy Trinity Church, led by Rev Ann Lynes, began their Carols@Costa evening by coming out to the gazebo and singing a selection of popular carols with us. That got the evening off to a great start - thank you Ann.

During the evening, the results of the Christmas Display Competition were announced and prizes presented
