Countdown to Dump Run

Dump 14

It’s that time of year again when HCRA organises its annual Spring clean of our three roads.

This year our Dump Run event will take place on Saturday, May 7 so put the date in your diary.

The event sees a team of HCRA volunteers hire a tipper truck to take unwanted items to the town dump for FREE.

All residents in Frognal Avenue, Rosslyn Crescent and Woodlands Road have to do is stack their junk neatly on the pavement outside their home before 9am on the day.

We have once again joined forces with the RSPCA who will be collecting any items to good to take to landfill including clothes, toys, furniture, crockery, fabric and books.

The event is FREE but we will be going round door-to-door to collect donations towards the hire of the Shiply van and annual subscriptions to HCRA.

Dump Run is co-ordinated by a team of volunteers so any extra help is welcome. The event starts at about 9am in Woodlands Road.

Old people’s home could be replaced by flats

Watkins House care home in Woodlands Road looks set to close with plans to demolish the building and replace it with flats.

In addition, the Sea Cadets’ hut at the bottom of Woodlands could also be knocked down to create a new base and more new homes, HCRA has been told.

HCRA understands some of the residents of Watkins House have already been moved.

Planning applications for the proposed new developments do not appear to have been submitted to Harrow Council. HCRA will be monitoring the situation.
