On 2nd June, Buckingham Palace announced that Northwood Hills Residents’ Association had been awarded ”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.
Andrew Riley, Chairman of NHRA added “that the Committee is both delighted and humbled to have received the award, which also allows them to use the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service logo. The award recognizes the high standards that NHRA has been operating at over a number of years. We are very mindful that this award would not have been possible without the support of our network of roads stewards, volunteers, members, and the community. This includes the schools, shops, Doctors, Police, Scouts, faith and other groups who so generously support our activities. Also whilst we are apolitical I do need to thank Nick Hurd, MP and our Ward Councillors Jonathan Bianco, John Morgan and Duncan Flynn and those Councillors before them who have encouraged and supported us in the quest to make Northwood Hills a place where people want to live, work and enjoy themselves.”
