It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Robert Fulton on 7th May 2024. Robert’s contribution to HWRA over many years cannot be underestimated. He was our Treasurer, Webmaster, Newsletter Editor and only days before his death was actively engaged in his role as Election Agent. His wise counsel will be sorely missed in the affairs of HWRA.

Please see the link below for details of Robert’s funeral which will take place on Thursday 23rd May.

If you would like to attend the wake following the funeral , please contact Saranne Bristow at for more information and to assist Robert’s family with catering arrangements. 



We are pleased to announce that Councillor Gill Coates will be standing for re-election as one of our three residents association councillors in Hinchley Wood and Weston Green ward.
Congratulations to Gill on another decisive win!
