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.


Last Updated 1st December :  The Association regrets that all the tickets for the Children's Christmas Party on Sunday 2nd December have now been sold and no further applications can be accepted


The next General Meeting of the Association is on Tuesday 15th January 2019 at The Community Centre. Following the proposals by our three local surgeries to merge into a "Coastal Medical Partnership", we hope to have a Speaker from the Steering Group working on this merger to address the Meeting.
