THE NORTH ST MARGARET’S RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION (NSMRA) www.nsmra.org
“North of the 316 – near the Ailsa” is the area known as North St Margaret’s, an area with an interesting history and a strong sense of community. To the east is the Thames with its houseboats and towpath walks and cycle path and behind the terraces of Haliburton Road lies the River Crane, host to crabs, kingfishers, herons and boats. To the north, the village of Old Isleworth, mentioned in the Doomsday Book, with its old riverside pubs, post office, delicatessens, restaurants, and Syon House, the London home of the Duke of Northumberland. And, to the south, the coffee shops and restaurants of St Margaret’s village. It’s an area with a real sense of “neighbourhood”.
The NSMRA was established in 2002 to fight the over-development of the Brunel site – now the Octagon development – on the east side of St Margaret’s Road. The Association continues today to focus on local issues and developments which impact on its residents, either directly, or indirectly. The Association enjoys an excellent relationship with our local councillors: Ben Khosa, Geoff Acton and Alexander Ehmann and with the Community police officers.
