Frequently asked questions

What is a resident's association?

A resident’s association is a group of people from a neighbourhood that come together to represent their neighbourhood. In our eyes, a resident’s association’s primary role is to build a community, and to connect and support local residents. We do this by organising social events, such as a community restaurant, film club, boardgame club and family outdoor activities. In this way, we hope to make Eddington a warm and welcoming place to live. In addition, we communicate with all parties that are present in Eddington and surroundings, including the Cambridge City Council, Portal, Storey’s Field Centre, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, New Life Church, Cambridge North West Development group, Girton College and others, to create opportunities for collaboration and support.
