What is the Upnor Residents Association?

Trying to find out more about the Upnor Residents Association? You’ve come to the right place. Here’s all information available about the Upnor Residents Association.

What is the Upnor Residents Association?

The Upnor Residents Association was a group of local residents who met to discuss village issues, developments, businesses and other matters. They used to run the Upnor Residents Association website which seems to have been dormant since 2010.

You can read past newsletters, village updates and general Upnor news on the website, but don’t expect any recent posts. But all accounts, it seems that the website, along with the association, is no longer active online.

Who is part of the Upnor Residents Association?

The Upnor Residents Association used to be comprised of a secretary, chairman and five local street representatives. You can find the previous residents on their old website, however it’s unclear whether this information has been updated for 2020. The most recent posts on the website are from 2010, so it’s unlikely these residents are still active in the association.

It’s also unclear if the Upnor Residents Association itself has disbanded or is still active. By the looks of things, it seems that it has stopped running.
