Merton Park Ward Residents' Association

Welcome to the website of the Merton Park Ward Residents' Association (MPWRA). Here's where to get updates on local events and issues, read information behind the stories and give your opinions on things that matter to you by emailing us.   


*** The Council Elections will be held on 3 May ***

MPWRA will be sponsoring three Independent Resident candidates to stand for election as your ward councillors. 

At our Special General Meeting on 7 March, our members unanimously selected Edward Foley, Peter Southgate and Dickie Wilkinson as our candidates.

The fact that we are able, yet again, to sponsor three candidates is entirely down to the support of our members.  Many have supported us since we started in 1990.  Merton Park has been represented by Independent Residents councillors ever since.  They are accountable to MPWRA members - and we are proud and thankful for their achievements.


*** Our Next Meeting is on Wednesday 4 April ***

It will be held in Merton Park Primary School at 8pm.   Our speaker will be Sarah Gould, Merton Heritage Manager, LBM, who will be presenting "Merton Memories".  Everyone is welcome.

We shall be distributing our election manifesto to all households in the ward at the end of March; so it will also be a great opportunity to ask the candidates about issues in the Local Elections campaign.

You can download a poster for the meeting here about two weeks before the meeting.  Many thanks to all those residents who display our posters to keep their neighbours informed.


***  FORUM - alerts - MEMBERSHIP  ***

The Spring edition of our FORUM newsletter will be delivered, as usual, to every household in the ward over the next few days by our wonderful volunteers.  You can read it now if you click here.   And to see our ten-year archive click here.

You can sign up to receive our email alerts on important and urgent local issues.  Just put "alerts" in the title and your address in the body of your email to us.

We hope you enjoy reading FORUM and that you will feel that you would like to join MPWRA to help support our efforts to look after our ward, including FORUM circulation.  It's easy to join us.  Just click here.
