Moor Park Residents Association promotes a thriving, friendly neighbourhood with a strong community spirit
A Brief History
Moor Park and Sandy Lodge Residents Association was formed in 1942 to give residents better representation on the estate under development at the time by Moor Park Ltd.
These days, Moor Park Residents Association (MPRA) extends its interest over a wider area and includes Moor Lane, Home Farm Road and Park Close. We work to make the estate a neighbourly and enjoyable place to live in and continue to celebrate and develop the strong sense of community that comes from living in such a unique neighborhood.
What we do
MPRA works actively with Herts Neighbourhood Watch and Online Watch Link (OWL) which are run by Hertfordshire Police to help residents be aware of crime prevention opportunities and informed of active crimes in our area and any scams.
MPRA liaises with local bodies and authorities to provide a high standard of amenities for our community, including pursuing a level of high-speed broadband for all residents, supporting the Withey Beds Nature Reserve and engaging with the Green Belt council.
MPRA arranges and supports social events including the annual Christmas fair with Eastbury Residents’ Association, Carols by the shops and the 10K run, both in aid of local cancer charities.
Links with Moor Park (1958) Ltd
Moor Park (1958) Ltd was formed in 1958 to inherit and manage the assets of the original development company and to enforce the covenants applied to all freehold properties on the Estate.
Moor Park (1958) Ltd is also responsible for managing matters on the Estate relating to security, planning, traffic, parking, roads, trees and for promoting adherence to the Moor Park Conservation Appraisal.
Together Moor Park (1958) Ltd and Moor Park Residents Association work to protect and promote the interests of the Estate and its residents. Further information on Moor Park (1958) Ltd can be found here.
MPRA Committee Members
Chair & External Communities Liaison (other Local Residents Associations, Neighbourhood Plans)
Sarah has lived on the Estate on and off since 1967! Early years were spent in Wales, so the Estate felt very urban and busy in comparison. She has four grown-up children who attended local schools. Sarah has been Chairman of the Residents Association for too many years but enjoys serving the community and working with the committee to keep Moor Park a lovely place to live. Spare time is spent attempting to play golf and tennis!
Debbie has lived in Moor Park since 1995 after leaving both Hong Kong and Central London. She fell in love with Moor Park after her first visit and their family including both sons have enjoyed living here for almost 30 years. They have very much enjoyed the quality of life that the Estate offers with the convenience of its location and easy commute into London.
Debbie is keen to help maintain the attraction and enhance the facilities, environment and sense of community so that we can continue to enjoy Moor Park well into the future.
Moor Lane, Home Farm Road & Park Close Liaison
Roy has lived in Moor Lane since 1978 and, after a career in the IT industry, is now happily retired enjoying as much golf and travel as possible. His aim is to represent the interests of Moor Lane, Home Farm Road & Park Close residents within the Residents Association and to support its aims and needs when required.
Website & Community WhatsApp Groups
Danny moved to Moor Park in 1999, though it has taken retirement and dog-sitting duties for him to discover all the wonderful walking paths in and around the estate. He has previously been a director of Moor Park(1958) and is keen to support the work of the Residents Association in maintaining the semi-rural character of Moor Park and developing a strong local community spirit.
Local Community Environment
Fearghal has been a resident of Moor Park since 1994, his children have grown up on the estate and enjoyed the ambiance of the area. He was neighborhood watch co-ordinator for many years. He has a special interest in the environment and is the residents association representative on the Friends of the Withey Beds committee, the local nature reserve on the north side of Moor Park.
Neighbourhood Watch & New Residents
Wendy moved to Moor Park with her family in 2012 and was immediately struck by how safe the Estate felt, something that she still values when she and her husband take their daily walk, whatever the time of day. Part of this comes from the sense that neighbours look out for each other and that was why she volunteered to take on the role of Moor Park Co-Ordinator for Neighbourhood Watch.
She’s encouraged to see how many residents are already registered for OWL (Online Watch Link) and hopes that the Residents’ Association new website will help grow that number.
Moor Park is a leafy, quiet Estate with outstanding schools , its own tube station, beautiful homes and fantastic sporting facilities on its doorstep. It is truly a beautiful place to live and one Pamela and her family have enjoyed for the past 15 years. The MP community is unique, one she is proud to be part of.
As a long standing member of the MPRA Pamela continues to represent the residents in helping to maintain the character of Moor Park and to develop a strong engagement and community spirit. She is also the Communications Director of MP1958. Recent combined community events she has worked closely on are Santa’s Dash and two successful Winter Fairs.
Local Community Liaison
Carolyn moved into Moor Park in 1979 and with her family and dogs has enjoyed the unique ambience of Moor Park, which is so special. She would like to maintain the character of Moor Park. During Covid the neighborliness of residents was so evident and Carolyn would like to continue this community spirit.
Treasurer & Fundraising
Richard and his family moved to Moor Park in 1996, attracted both by the neighbourhood and the proximity to excellent schools. It is a move he’s never regretted, with the added bonus of membership to Sandy Lodge Golf Club. Being a qualified accountant he was invited to join the committee as Treasurer, a role he’s now performed for several years.
