HCRA needs you!

HCRA is seeking a dynamic local resident to take on the role of chairing the organisation.

Current chair Helen Webster will be stepping down at the association’s annual general meeting in January.

“I have really enjoyed being chair of HCRA but have recently moved away from the neighbourhood so it’s time for someone new to take over,” she said.

“It’s a great way to get to know your neighbours and make a difference and I’ve found it relatively easy to fit in HCRA work with all the other things I do.”

Responsibilities include chairing meetings, liaising with Harrow Council and the local police and helping organise events.

Anyone interested in the role can call Helen to find out more on 07814 881018 or email chair@hcra.org.uk

Elections for all committee posts will take place at the AGM on Thursday, January 30. All local residents are invited to attend.
