Southend Day Trip – Cancelled
We just wanted to let you know that we’ve taken the decision to cancel the trip to Southend this summer. We know everyone will be disappointed, but at this stage it seems the safest thing to do. We will ensure everyone who booked and paid receives a full refund. We hope to plan an alternative day trip later in the year. Take care and stay safe.

Co-op Community Funding
We are delighted that the Co-op has selected the Meriden Residents Association as one of their local causes for a second year.
In order for you to help us again, you need to either phone the Co-op or go online to select us again – selecting us before is not automatically carried forward to this year, you need to do it again!
This means by purchasing a Co-op membership card (£1), and by nominating us (Meriden Residents Association) as your chosen local cause, every time as a Co-op member you purchase selected own-branded products and services, 1% of what you spend can now help the Meriden Residents Association (MRA) raise funds for forthcoming coach trips. Also the great news is 5% goes to you.
If you have not got a Co-op card, please purchase one from the Co-op and then phone or go online. Phone: 0800 023 4708 Online: https://www.coop.co.uk/membership to nominate us.
The money we received last year really helped to subsidise our annual coach trip to Southend. Thank you to all those who purchased a Co-op membership card and phoned the Co-op or went online to select the MRA as your chosen cause.
MRA Christmas Party & Tea and Mince Pies 2019
We had a great MRA Christmas party for the children on Saturday December 7th 2019 as well as tea and cakes for the adults. All our residents were invited to join us, from the very young to our senior residents.
We had 48 volunteers (including the committee) over the course of the day, setting up, running an activity or clearing away; some of those stayed all day which meant they were with us for nearly ten hours!
The day included Santa’s grotto and children’s art and crafts…
We also had lots of games for the children to enjoy…
Plus face painting, magic mirror and balloon making…
During the fun we also had a children’s tombola and a family raffle.
Along side the children’s Christmas party, we also had mince pies, cakes and tea for the adults.
We want to say a massive thank you to Mulalley who were our main sponsor. Thank you to Watford Football Club Community Sports and Education Trust for letting us use the Community Centre for free.
We would also like to thank ASDA for once again donating cakes for our children’s party and to the Co-op for donating mince pies for the afternoon tea and cakes. To Liz for baking and donating so many homemade cakes and for organising the adults’ tea and cake afternoon.
A big thank you to all those that have not been mentioned by name but you are very valued for who you are and all the work that you did.
