Dear HRA Members,

In common with so many other organisations, the HRA has had to respond to the restrictions imposed on account of the Coronavirus crisis.

Sadly, we will be unable to hold public meetings until further notice, and we have had likewise to close our building, The Old School at 254 Lymington Road, to all group activities.

However, the mailboxes at the Old School for HRA, the Parish Council, Highcliffe and Walkford in Bloom, and the Highcliffe Action Team, remain accessible as they are in the external porch. They can continue to be used in the normal way, subject to social distancing if more than one person is present – and hand-washing before and after use!

HRA Committee members will be keeping in close touch with each other by internet and telephone, and will continue to conduct HRA business as necessary. We will be happy to receive advice from members about issues of local concern - please use the contact form at the very bottom of this page.

Our thanks to all members who have renewed their membership subscriptions by Standing Order or by BACS, or by post to our mailbox at The Old School. You will understand that we are not currently able to bank your cheques as quickly as we would wish. We will update our membership database, and will include your details as supplied. For those who have not yet renewed, our membership year runs from 1st April, and renewals can be made via the form on our membership page.

With every good wish for your health and safety –

Richard Reader
on behalf of all the Directors of HRA CIC

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.
