Neighbours shared their concerns about local issues at HCRA’s annual general meeting last night.
The meeting, attended by 18 residents from Rosslyn Crescent, Frognal Avenue and Woodlands Road, featured reports on the association’s achievements in 2013.
HCRA chair Brett Lake-Benson thanked members for their hard work.
“It may not always feel like we’ve achieved much but people notice what we do and people appreciate what we do,” he told the meeting.
“We have all stepped outside our comfort zones by joining new people to do things towards the good and improvement of our three roads.
“It doesn’t take much effort, and we spend as little or as much time as we like. In doing so, we have made and will continue to make a positive difference to our neighbourhood, as Harrow Civic residents.”
The meeting, which was held at local business Seeds of Italy, was also a chance to set goals for the year ahead. Members agreed three targets, which include staging the ever-popular Dump Run event in April.
The two other goals were to plant at least three new trees in 2015 and increase regular contact with residents by email, text and social media.
Elections to the HCRA committee were followed by a lively neigbours’ forum where key issues included problems with bin collections, ongoing fly-tipping, broken pavements and rats – all of which will be addressed in more detail at future meetings.
