An Overview of Our Achievements
In January Committee members and guests visited the Battle of Britain Bunker in Uxbridge. This is a momentous piece of local and national social history. NHRA will never forget those that gave their lives for the freedoms we all enjoy today.
In May we made a ring fenced donation of £1,760 via the Mayor of Hillingdon’s Charity to Grangewood School and were delighted when the Council doubled the amount donated.
In June Buckingham Palace announced that Northwood Hills Residents’ Association had been awarded “The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service” for providing inspirational and outstanding services to the community of Northwood Hills. 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. We received an engraved piece of Crystal, a certificate signed by the Queen and permission to use the QAVS logo on all our materials. In addition, our Deputy Chair and Hon. Secretary attended a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.
