Ruislip Manor has useful local shops and some specialty shops serving a wide area, including a mobility appliances retailer, two motor-cycle specialists and two bed specialists, on opposite corners of the main road junction. Through this page we will keep members informed about proposals for developments in this area.
Ruislip Manor Chamber of Commerce has invited the Mayor of London to come and see for himself what needs to be done to make a real difference in our area. We cross our fingers that this exciting opportunity bears fruit.
Come and meet our representatives on the Christmas Fun Day on Saturday 12th November and tell us what improvements you would like to see in the Victoria Road shopping area.
The winning entry was Harlington Hospice charity shop in Victoria Road. A certificate and £100 prize was presented by Mayor of Hillingdon. The D Spot café in Victoria Road was highly commended. Traders apparently reported increased footfall. The scheme is to be introduced in Northwood Hills in April.
Also starting in April, businesses may be eligible for a grant of up to £4,800 to improve their shop fronts. This will be funded from money secured by Hillingdon Council from the Mayor of London.
We were stallholders for the first time. We learned a lot to do differently on future occasions, but even so it was a great success. Our team enjoyed meeting members, hearing their views and explaining what our Association does on their behalf. It was great to chat to John Randall MP when he came to the stall and later in the day to meet the Mayor, Councillor Mary O'Connor who is seen below with Executive Member Ivor John and Chairman Joan Davis.
The next big event will be switching on the Christmas lights on 12th November. Our team is unanimous - we will be there!
At its meeting on 24 May 2012 Hillingdon Council Cabinet received an update on town centre regeneration within Hillingdon and in particular, progress on improvements within the three town centres which were the focus for regeneration, namely Hayes, Ruislip Manor and Northwood Hills. Cabinet gave its authority to the grant agreement with the Greater London Authority in order to deliver the programme of improvements for Ruislip Manor and Northwood Hills town centres, following a successful £2.7m grant award to Hillingdon. Officer to action: Jales Tippell – Planning,
Environment, Education and Community Services.
We wonder whether people in motorised buggies share that view? Please let us know.

These days are usually great fun for children and interesting for everyone – a day to invite young nieces and nephews to enjoy themselves, a chance for grown-ups to find out about local activities and for everyone to chat to local traders.
The usually staid shopping street is transformed with colour and music and everyone enjoying themselves. Do come along!
