WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
A window on our activities
Welcome to our website. Our aim is to keep it factual, interesting and up-to-date, and we would be delighted to receive your feedback. See the Contact Us section for details on how you can get in touch.
The last few years have been busy for our Residents' Association: we have been concentrating on a variety of issues including the Local and Neighbourhood Plan Consultations; lobbying on behalf of residents on planning applications such as the Pinewood Studios' expansion and Welcome Break Motorway Services Area; parking and traffic issues; Neighbourhood Clean-up campaigns; continuing with the IHRA Air Pollution Monitoring programme and working with Iver Parish Council to secure improved Christmas lights for the village.
We are continuously working with various bodies on keeping abreast of major infrastructure projects that affect our area, with further detailed information through our regular news bulletins to members and via our social media channels. When able, we also organise and participate in local activities that help to bring our wider community together and proudly support charitable projects such as Contact the Elderly.
Thank you to all of our members for supporting us. Please introduce your friends and neighbours to our website and encourage them to join the Association. The more members we have, the stronger our voice.

Key information for members
Much more than just an AGM
An opportunity to get your questions answered about the future of Iver Heath
The COVID pandemic precluded us from holding an AGM since 2019 and so much has happened in those two years as far as plans for the Ivers are concerned. We regularly get asked:
And that's just for starters. For this year's AGM we have brought together a wide range of representatives from Buckinghamshire Council, The Ivers Parish Council and other key organisations to provide the latest news on the 'big issues' and answer members' questions on specific issues that are important to them.
Please do come along on Saturday 9th October. As we are not 'out of the woods' yet as far as the COVID pandemic goes, we strongly recommend you bring a mask and observe social distancing guidelines for your safety and that of others.
A novel way to celebrate your special occasion
Why not use the IHRA Phone Box mini-gallery?
IHRA has been using our iconic phone box in Pinewood Green as a mini-gallery to collectively celebrate community themes and events such as Christmas, Diwali, Valentine's Day or even our links to the Carry On films many of which were shot locally. This will continue with our list of scheduled occasions.
However, we are now making the phone box gallery available to local residents for the same purpose. If you would like to create a mini display for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or maybe even marriage proposal, then just get in touch with us. Email email@example.com or leave a message on 07572 125960 and we'll get right back to you.
There is no charge for IHRA Members; a small fee applies to non-members.
Note: this phone box is managed by the IHRA Committee. All content displayed must be family-friendly. Sorry but no advertising, business promotions or political messages will be accepted.

It has been a busy twelve months for the IHRA so we had a lot to share with members this year on various important projects and topics including:
- Village clean-up initiatives
- Feedback from what residents told us at our Village Planning meetings
- The potential of setting up a crime-reduction scheme using CCTV and ANPR cameras in the village
- What nearly two years' worth of air quality monitoring results have told us
- Pinewood Studios works updates and developments
... and much more.
You can view the minutes and the slides from the AGM on the Useful Information section of this website.
Christmas 2018 members' screening
IHRA members enjoy event at Pinewood Studios
A ‘Film Night’ with drinks, snacks and a screening of The Jungle Book movie was hosted for IHRA members and their guests by Pinewood Studios. It was a very well attended event, and the evening was enjoyed by children and adults alike.
We’d like to extend a special thank you to Kathryn Maidment and the team from Pinewood Studios for making this such an enjoyable occasion for everyone.
Planters are 'blooming lovely' ...
... thanks to IHRA members
Two planters near the Co-op were 'adopted' from Iver Parish Council by IHRA in 2017, as they were looking a little tired to say the least. Since then they have been regularly re-planted and lovingly tended by IHRA members. Our special thanks go to Gill, Glynis, Jean and to Sue from Heatherden Green seen here keeping the Geraniums well watered through the Summer drought.
