Our friends and networks

Moor Pool Residents Association

The Moor Pool Residents Association was created for the community of Moor Pool in Harborne to serve local residents. They provide information for residents on their website and also the bi-monthly Moor Pool Duck. The MRA also organise events and coffee mornings are held on the last Saturday of the month in the Lower Hall and open to all.

They support and work in partnership with Moor Pool Heritage Trust. The MRA is about the place and people who live on the Moor Pool Estate, whilst MPHT manage the facilities and green spaces they own for the benefit of those living on the Estate and wider community. Both work together to preserve the Estate’s unique character.
