Events in 2020

Like all other organisations, we have been plunged into a period of uncertainty, with really no idea when things will return to normal, consequently our programme of activities is currently largely suspended


Many of you will be aware that The New Milton Residents' Association was the facilitator for the VE75 Events which were scheduled for May 1st until May 10th, including the 'We'll Meet Again Concerts' on the 1st & 2nd May and the 'VE75 Party on the Clifftop' which was planned for Bank Holiday Friday 8th May, 2020.  Thes are both obviously cancelled.

Provisionally at this time, coronavirus situation permitting, the Association has joined forces with The Lions Club of New Milton to stage an event called 'VJ75 Party on the Clifftop' on Saturday 15th August - the actual 75th Anniversary of the conclusion of WWII.

A final decision on whether this event will continue will be made in early May.



The Community in Action arm of the Residents Association is all about developing the social aspects of the association to bring New Milton residents of all ages together to enjoy themselves with a view to raising funds to support those in our community who are less fortunate than ourselves.

The planned series of Excursions for 2020 has currently been suspended and we will publish here any resumption of the programme this year in due course.

Howver in January 2021 we have the Annual Excursion to The Mill at Sonning and Booking are being accepted now. This is always a very popular outing and you are advised to book early.

NMRA EXCURSION - The Mill at Sonning Theatre Visit
23rd January, 2021

We are advertising this wonderful show very early this year as the Theatre trip is so popular.   As the Theatre also requires a large deposit upfront for tickets, we are asking for part payment now and the remainder later in the year. Please read the payment instructions carefully below to secure your place.

First of all, let's hear about the show itself:  in Irving Berlin's 'Top Hat' musical, we follow Jerry Travers as he arrives in London to appear in a stage show produced by Horace Hardwick.  But this being a musical comedy, things do not go according to plan and pretty soon a case of mistaken identity and romance sends things off course.  Handsome Travers attempts to win the heart of the lovely Dale Tremond but she mistakes him for Hardwick – a married man – meaning that his advances horrify her as he attempts to woo her.   With fantastic and well known songs such as: Puttin' On the Ritz, I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket, Isn't This a Lovely Day To Be Caught in the Rain, Top Hat White Tie and Tails, Cheek to Cheek and Let's Face the Music and Dance, this is sure to be an all-time winner, especially at the delightfully unique Mill at Sonning Theatre.   With sumptuous choreography and glamorous costumes befitting of the Mill Theatre, it's going to be a sure hit with our NMRA members!   

The cost of £85 per person (everything's gone up for next year) includes:  morning coffee and pastries, two-course lunch with hot drink, theatre seats, coach and all gratuities.

You Can Book your Tickets now by Downloading and Printing the Booking Form.

Another highly successful Afternoon Tea was held at The Community Centre on the 5th August 2019.  It is planned to have another such event during the Summer of 2020.
