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.
