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.

The New Milton Residents' Association is encouraging as many of you as possible to organise 'Socially Distanced' Street Parties to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day on Saturday 15th August 2020 - as we can't all enjoy the 'VJ75 Party on the Clifftop' that had been planned.

Due to some technical reasons and the difficulties of confirming much of the content during these difficult times, the Launch of the new NMRA Integrated Web Site which was scheduled for the next few weeks, has been delayed until September.  We apologise for this delay - the wait will be worth it (we hope!) to enjoy a much improved, easier to navigate and more informative Website for New Milton.
