NMRA - Your Residents' Association

The New Milton Residents' Association (NMRA) is an Association which represents the residents of the Parish of New Milton, including the areas of Ashley, Bashley and Barton on Sea. We work together to represent the collective views of our cohesive community, to highlight important issues and to work in partnership with others to make New Milton a better place to live, work and play.





With membership of your Residents' Association, you will receive 12 issues of the 24 Page "Focus" delivered to your door by our volunteer network - and you can attend all of our General Meetings.

All of this will only cost you £3.00 per year !

We have six general meetings a year plus an Annual General Meeting and Open Forum - held alternately between locations in New Milton and Barton on Sea and they alternate in timings between 2:15 pm and 7:00 pm. Topics vary widely, generally in reponse to requests made to us.

 Community in Action - a new group within NMRA to develop the social aspects of the association. The objective is to bring New Milton residents of all ages together,  to enjoy themselves,  with an aim of raising funds to support those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
