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 !
