Introduction – what is the Inkerman Area Residents Association?

To remind established residents and to introduce us to new residents…

The Inkerman Area Residents Association (IARA)  is our local residents’ association. We cover the area bounded to the east by Kentish Town Road, to the south by Prince of Wales Road and  to the west and north by the railway lines.

That’s about 10 streets. Prince of Wales, Anglers Lane, Alma, Cathcart, Raglan, Inkerman, Willes, Grafton, Ryland, Holmes and then tiny Perren St and Athlone St.

We started about 40 years ago. We are all volunteers. Anyone who lives here is automatically a member, and you can be involved in the association by coming to meetings and/or joining our ever-growing e-mail group, of over 300 residents, the main way we consult on local issues as they arise (e mail us on inkermanara@hotmail.com to join the group).

Last year, 2021, with lockdown etc we created a WhatsApp group which now has over 150 members and is very lively. Just email us with your name, address and phone number to join. We now also have three specialist WhatsApp groups for Local History, Trees and Birds. (more…)

Very successful street party on 5 June

Thanks to the initiative of Dilip of Alma St in suggesting a Queens Jubilee event, quite a band of helpers developed. We closed the end of Inkerman Road, which made an ideal area for a gathering and for the kids to tear about – which certainly did. At a guess there were about 35 or… Read more »
