Highcliffe Residents' Association

A Community Interest Company

CLICK HERE TO TAKE OUR SURVEY ABOUT THE OLD SCHOOL

Dear HRA Members,

The Directors of Highcliffe Residents Association announced on 20th March that, owing to the Coronavirus pandemic, it was necessary to close The Old School at 254 Lymington Road to all forms of group activity until further notice.

The letter boxes for various organisations have remained accessible in the front porch area of The Old School. Individual officers of the Parish Council and Men’s Shed have been able to access their respective parts of the building for admin. purposes etc.: but no group activities were allowable before 4th July in the light of Government advice.

With the recent easing of lockdown restrictions, limited meeting activities have now become feasible, subject to compliance with Government guidelines on social distancing, numbers attending, risk assessments, etc. This applies to use of The Old School by the Parish Council, Men’s Shed, and the HRA itself. However, the hire of halls for more general community purposes will not resume until further easing – hopefully later this year.

Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to continuing more general activities once this becomes possible.

Keep safe!

Richard Reader
HRA CIC Director and secretary
on behalf of the HRA Board

About

Highcliffe is part of the town of Christchurch, but now has its own Highcliffe and Walkford Parish Council. From 1 April 2019 it became part of the Unitary Authority of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. The village boasts beautiful unspoiled beaches, unsurpassed clifftop views, nature reserves, wildlife areas, and much more, including historic Highcliffe Castle.

The Residents Association was formed in 1945 to ensure that the unique character of the village and its surroundings are maintained. It has grown to be a powerful voice in local affairs, campaigning ceaselessly to preserve the lasting character of the area.

In 2007 the Association became a Community Interest Company, which gave many benefits, not least of which was to allow the Association, both Executive and membership, to be more effective in campaigning for the future of Highcliffe.
