President: Ian Radbone
I want Norwood to be a place where residents feel that they are part of a community; where they can walk down any street and greet people they know, where they will want to help neighbours and know that if they need help, their neighbours can be called on.
The Norwood Residents Association can bring people together and can help residents work together to improve their neighbourhoods. It can be a forum to discuss issues affecting our way of life, and it can represent the people of Norwood in dealing with Council, State government and the politicians who serve the area. I hope that more and more residents will see the value of the Association and will join us creating a suburb that residents never want to leave.
Secretary/Treasurer: Tom Smith
I have a background as an IT professional and have been a Norwood resident for over twenty years and love living here. I consider Norwood as the jewel in the crown of Adelaide suburbs and the closest we have to the European style urban village. With its shops, cafés, entertainment options and proximity to the city it ticks many boxes. So, it is important to ensure we preserve the things that make it so attractive while also recognising that change is inevitable and to embrace those changes that are sensible and sensitive.
Committee member: Kay Wiggins
My late husband and I downsized from a beautiful home and garden in Crafers to a townhouse close to The Parade in 2014. We were delighted to have the opportunity to retire here, and to be part of this beautiful community. I have become a member of the NRA because this group of people is like-minded to maintain the heritage and beauty of this desirable suburb.
Committee member: Chris Francis
I am a retired English-Humanities teacher and antique dealer, with a passion for Norwood which spans more than 30 years.
The ambience and comforting sense of community here makes Norwood a widely desirable residential destination. Locals and visitors alike treasure the prevailing historic built form, which gives one of South Australia’s oldest suburbs its unique appeal and identity.
While we all readily acknowledge the need for progress, I strongly believe any further development should not only be sensitive and respectful to what already exists, but should also add value to our daily lives.
Committee member: Brenda Harris
Over the last 40 years as a resident, I’ve seen Norwood change and grow. As a near CBD neighbourhood, some changes are inevitable, and most have contributed positively to our suburb. Into the future I’d like to see Norwood maintain a great mix of heritage, community spirit and thriving businesses and amenities, while taking on well thought-through changes that keep our area vibrant and welcoming for residents.
