The newly-formed Bedford Park Residents’ Association is holding its inaugural public meeting later this month.

The Association has been set up to be a focal point for all community, social, and family issues.

It intends to complement the work of the existing Bedford Park Society, which is involved with planning issues, but will have a wider remit.

The inaugural meeting will take place on 27th March at St Michael’s Church, at 7.30 for 8pm. The meeting is designed to determine the objectives and governance for the Association. Local MP, and Bedford Park resident, Angie Bray, will also be attending.

BPRA coordinator Hugh Johnson said: “The new Association is intended to be a focal point for all community and social issues affecting our area, with all residents having an equal voice.

“We look forward to working with the Bedford Park Society, but our remit is going to be a lot wider and more encompassing.”

The Association is currently carrying out a survey into the issues of most concern to Bedford Park residents, which can be found on the group’s website. The results of this survey will be presented at the meeting.

Local MP Angie Bray said: “This is a great initiative – I am also a member of the Bedford Park Society, which tends to focus more on conservation issues.

“I think that Bedford Park can only benefit from this new group – anything that encourages residents to air their concerns and to work together is a good thing! I am very much looking forward to the first meeting!”

More information, including the survey, can be found at, or the group can be contacted by email at

The Bedford Park Society commented "The Society knows little yet about the intentions of the BPRA. We will be liaising on roles and activities."
