The East Barnet Residents' Association welcomes everyone who has an interest in the East Barnet area. We have no connection with any other organisation and membership is open to all religions, races, political views, social and ethnic backgrounds, everyone.
The Association was formed in 1982 when a group of mums were horrified to learn of plans to develop the Church Hill Farm green space (aka The Saxon Field). Since then we have successfully challenged plans for a floodlit golf driving range and clubhouse on Pymmes Brook's floodplain in Oak Hill Park, and have gained many significant improvements to the local area. More recently we have helped to keep Post Offices open, reject plans for mobile phone masts, stop the introduction of parking charges in the Village car park, stop yellow lines by Russell Lane's shops, and helped get the Brunswick Park Health Centre open again.
We have a solid following of about 500 households of like minded folk who care about what goes on in the area. The committee always analyse all planning proposals in the area and take part in many local consultative forums. The President is James Mustard, Rector of St Mary's Church.
To join the East Barnet Residents' Association you may now subscribe online: click here
Or contact us with your name, address and email (and preferably a phone number), and we'll reply with the local address where you can pay your subscription.
In return you'll receive our regular newsletters hot off the press long before they are posted publicly on this website, and access to our private closed Facebook group. We also email interim news bulletins as things arise. For just £2 per household per year it's a great way of keeping in touch with local issues and swapping information.
Please let your friends and neighbours know, so that more people can be involved in the Association.
The "Parish" part of the Association's original name comes from St Mary's Parish boundary which was used to define the Association's geographical area. This is not just the East Barnet EN4 postcode but includes parts of New Barnet (EN5) to the North West; Southgate (N14) to the East; Whetstone (N20) to the West; and New Southgate (N11) to the South. But even if you don't reside within the Parish boundary, you may still be able to join (see the constitution).

The President of the Association continues to be the Rector of St Mary's Church (currently James Mustard) but as stated above we have no connection with any other organisation. Membership is open to all religions, races, political views, and social and ethnic backgrounds. Everyone is welcome, if they have an interest in our area.
