The Association exists under a formal constitution, with a committee elected at its AGM. The committee in turn elects a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. Since August 2011, the committee comprises 4 members from Hornsey Park Road, 3 from Park Ridings, 3 from Alexandra Road and 1 member from each of Malvern Road, Ravenstone Road and The Avenue, broadly reflecting the number of residents across our area (see below). Since 2013, the committee has elected Co-chairs instead of Chair and Vice Chair, to reflect the diverse responsibilities of chairing the association. Our constitution affords all residents of our area automatic membership.
The Association is the ‘care taker’ of the Sunrise Neighbourhood Watch, the co-ordinator for which is Ryan King, PMRA Committee member. Business and issues can be brought to our General Meetings.
Our General Meetings in 2016 will be held in January, March, June, September and November in the hall at the rear of Grace Babtist Church, Park Ridings, N8. All are welcome. Refreshments are provided. The meetings are free. We have a social evening in December with our friends from the neighbouring residents association, the Noel Park North Area Residents Association. We meet monthly for Community Gardening on the first Saturday of the month and have an outdoor drop in social event at the end of November/early December in one of the areas of Community Gardening. The committee meets prior to General Meetings and the AGM and committee members attend other meetings as and when required. Since its establishment in 2014, PMRA has hosted the Residents and Businesses Liaison Group meetings established by National Grid under the planning permission for the development of the Heartlands site.
All residents of unaffiliated roads in Hornsey Park are welcome at our meetings and to bring issues to them, provided they first contact a member of the committee or contact the Association via the web site. Should another road in Hornsey Park wish to join us, the Association would consider the matter at its next AGM, provided their is clear evidence of commitment to support the work and values of the Association and abide by its constitution.
