Membership: We have a membership made up of individuals, families and organisations all either in, or with links to, the NW7 area. Depending on how you count the collection of individuals, families and organisations this represents many hundreds of members. We are continually looking for new people to join as an increase in numbers improves our ‘influence’ on planning matters.

Committee: The Committee comprises some of the Trustees of the Society, plus additional co-opted members with special skills. The Secretary to the Society is a paid position. All other Officers hold Honorary positions. The Trustees comprise the Chair and Vice-Chair and the other current Committee members as voted by the members at the Annual General Meeting. More about the workings of the Committee can be found in ‘What we do’ and ‘Frequently asked questions’.

Road-stewards: The work of delivering our numerous Newsletters and AGM Reports falls to our Road-Stewards, who also act as the eyes and ears of our Society in the area. At any one time we have about 30 Road-Stewards and we are always on the lookout to find more so that we can spread the workload.

MHPS News … : MHPS started the newsletter in December 1977. There have always been Annual Reports to deliver to members, so since the Society started in 1949 there have been over 100,000 deliveries – not to mention the mail drops that have been done at time of particular local need. Our Road-Stewards are very special people.
