Northwood Hills Residents' Association have been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
This is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
The support of the network of roads stewards, volunteers, members, Ward Councillors and the community who so generously support our activities have encouraged and supported the Committee in the quest to make Northwood Hills a place where people want to live, work and enjoy themselves.
Two Committee members attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace in May, along with other recipients of this year’s Award.
Northwood Hills Residents' Association is one of 281 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year. The number of nominations and awards has increased year on year since the awards were introduced in 2002, showing that the voluntary sector is thriving and full of innovative ideas to make life better for those around them.
Award winners this year include volunteers helping people overcome mental health problems through sport, volunteers using caravans as mobile cafe/information centres in geographically remote locations and another group mentoring children who have a parent in prison.
Representatives of Northwood Hills Residents' Association received the award from Sir Ken Olisa, Lord Lieutenant of Greater London.
