Winchmore Hill Residents' Association
The Winchmore Hill Residents' Association covers an area bounded by Green Dragon Lane, Firs Lane, Hedge Lane, Bourne Hill, Oakwood Park and incorporates Winchmore Hill Ward and part of Grange, Bush Hill, Palmers Green and Southgate Wards.
Current membership varies between 300 - 400.
The Association is administered by a Committee, each member having a specific responsibility and this meets once a month, together with our Ward Councillors.
The Committee works closely with neighbouring Residents' Associations as sometimes issues are “cross border”, and with Southgate & District Civic Trust. We are affiliated to FERAA (Federation of Enfield Residents and Allied Associations). We attend the Local Community Forums and have representation on the Police Consultative Committee.
Information is circulated to our members through our Newsletter and to the public through our Notice Board on The Green, commercial publications such as the N21 Directory anf of course through our website.
We arrange members' meetings in the Spring (AGM), Summer and Autumn, held at the Waterhouse Hall, United Reformed Church, at the top of Compton Road by the railway bridge. Non members are welcome.
At these meetings members are advised on past and current issues by the committee or invited speakers.
Recently we have heard about bus services and revised routing, the issue of cycle routes, community policing, North London Hospice and their development at The Laurels in Barrowell Green, 20mph limit areas around schools and planning legislation. These are also intended to be social occasions.
See our Meetings page for details.
The Winchmore Hill and Palmers Green Ward Councillors are again represented so they can be questioned by anybody at the meeting and our M.P. is usually there. These discussions are often quite lively!
