Membership


This page gives you some information about our organisation and how to get involved.

Our area

We are in the area of the London Borough of Brent bounded on the north by the London Overground railway line, on the south by the main railway line into Euston; on the west by the properties on the Queen’s Park side of Chamberlayne Road; and on the east by Donaldson Road/Woodville Road, the boundary of Paddington Cemetery and the properties on the west side of Willesden Lane.

 

Constitution

We are a democratic voluntary organisation, but not a charity. No members get paid for the work they do for the Association. The formalities are in our Constitution (amended November 2012) which you can download and read at your leisure.

Becoming a member

If you live within this area we would love you to join us, support our activities and have the benefit of the expert advice we can offer. Even if you live outside this area you can join us as an Associate – you can’t vote or be an officer, but other than that, you are a fully fledged member.

Monthly meetings

St Anne's Church, Salusbury RoadWe encourage people to come to our monthly meetings held  between 8.00 and 10.00pm at St Anne’s church, Salusbury Road, NW6. They are on the second Thursday of every month, except August. See the homepage for details of future meetings.

We make meetings as interesting as possible and often invite guests to speak on local issues.  The atmosphere is open and friendly. Members who come can ask questions and be involved in decision making. The meetings also give people a chance to meet friends and neighbours. Refreshments are available, usually from about 7.40pm.

All members receive well drafted minutes of the meetings.

Getting involved

Even if you can’t make it to meetings, you can support the Association in other ways. We always need volunteers to help with or organise the events we run, like Queen’s Park Day, Open Gardens or the Book Festival.  Another good way to get involved is through the Action Groups.

Contact us if you are interested.

Each street within the area has its own street representative who is a support point for residents, recruits new members and gives residents information about the association. The street rep also distributes the minutes, by hand or email, to the members in their street.
