2017 Civic Awards Winner
We are very pleased that our nomination of George Irons for the Barnet Civic Award was successful. As reported in the Barnet & Whetsone Press, at Barnet Town Hall the Mayor David Longstaff presented a framed vellum award to his family.
George made an outstanding contribution not just to the East Barnet Residents' Association, but to the people of Barnet, East Barnet, and Brunswick Park. His tireless work arranging and obtaining funding for better facilities in Oak Hill Park has greatly benefitted our area.
