Dear Residents,

Chorleywood Unites - Joint Press Release from CRA and CERA

It's not every day that we can report that your Residents' Association has merged with another, but over the past couple of weeks exactly this has happened. As many residents will know Chorleywood has had two residents’ associations – one covering the Chenies Estate only (Chenies Estate Residents’ Association - CERA) and another serving the rest of Chorleywood (Chorleywood Residents’ Association - CRA). Historically CERA has covered an area that was formerly part of Buckinghamshire until the county boundary changes back in 1991. Last summer the Chairs of the two associations began talks on how the organisations could better work together for the benefit of Chorleywood residents. Following much discussion the CERA Executive Committee decided to recommend to their membership that they formally join forces with CRA to form one united residents' association serving the whole of Chorleywood. We will be working through the detail of how we execute on the merger and will be working with former CERA contacts for the maximum benefit of Chorleywood over the next few months, and look forward to serving all the residents of Chorleywood in the future. If you have any queries or comments please get in touch by email to ch...@chorleywoodresidents.co.uk or leave us a message on 01923 537637.

It's not just the Residents' Association making the news.... In other Chorleywood news....

Chorleywood has made the last and final list for BT to upgrade us to Infinity. But do we have to wait much longer for it to happen?

Transport
We've been on the case of frustrated motorists, jilted bus passengers, and school children who have have to wade to get to school.

Don't forget to report as many Highway faults as you can - Herts Highways update their fault reporting website

Policing
Our elected Police and Crime Commissioner has produced their draft Police Plan for Hertfordshire. Apparently there was a Police and Crime Panel meeting in Rickmansworth on Thursday evening in Rickmansworth but no one thought to tell any stakeholders until a few hours before the meeting so we couldn't go along. Anyway, we can all read the Commissioners proposals - we have a few weeks to feed back.

Environment
The parish council are due to start work on Church Pond on the Common.

Noticeboard
It looks like the Chorleywood Bookshop is preparing another Tour de Force with the Great Little LitFest in March 2013. Please take a few moments to check through the details of the event and support our local independent bookshop deliver another educational and informative literary festival.

#shoplocal
With all the fiasco over food supply chain don't forget that our local high street in Chorleywood has a number of very highly respected independent retailers that can tell you where they source their food from! You know where they are, make sure we support them.
