Welcome to the Northaw & Cuffley Residents Association Committee

About Us


Michael Green – Chair

I have lived in Cuffley since 1962 and have always been a member of the association and its forerunner. My other local interests include Committee Member of the Cuffley and Goffs Oak Medical Practice Patient Participation Group, Committee Member of The Kidston Institute at Northaw, Volunteer for the Age UK Hertfordshire Visiting Scheme, and Volunteer at the Epilepsy Clinic, Harlow Hospital.

Vice Chair – Position vacant 

Susan Ashby – Membership Secretary

We moved to Northaw in 2012 and became involved in NCRA when we realised the extent of the proposed building on the Green Belt. We started by delivering the annual leaflets and I am now the Membership Secretary.  Four generations of our family live locally and we see how local issues affect all ages in the community.

Diane Draper – Treasurer

I have lived in Cuffley for over 20 years and been a member of NCRA for most of that time and am now the Treasurer. I am interested in planning applications for our two villages and review them for the area on a weekly basis on behalf of NCRA. I am a Committee Member of the Patient Participation Group for Cuffley & Goffs Oak   Medical Practice. I am also a volunteer at the 60 Plus luncheon club in Potters Bar and for Enfield & District Veteran Vehicle Trust at Whitewebbs Museum of Transport.

Anna Sharkey – Secretary

I have been a resident in Cuffley for 7 years – a new resident compared to others! In that time I have become focused on keeping the village spirit. Previously I lived in Goffs Oak for 12 years.   I joined NCRA in 2015 in the hope that I can assist and influence the current concerns of residents. In the past I have been involved in Parents Teachers Associations and local community groups.

NCRA when we realised the extent of the proposed building on the Green Belt. Four generations of our family live locally and we see how local issues affect all ages in the community and we are concerned about the long-term effects of planning and environmental issues etc. My hobbies are mainly rambling and fishing, and I am a member of the Barnet Angling Club.

I have lived in Northaw most of my life, and attended Northaw Primary School as my Mother did before me! I joined NCRA as a committee member in 2017 and have a nominated responsibility for developing and maintaining the web site.

Pamela Rutherford

My family and I moved to Cuffley from neighbouring Enfield in 1999. I am a recently retired secondary HeadTeacher and National Leader of Education and still have some involvement with local schools and other educational establishments. I also have an interest in planning and conservation issues and am a long standing member of the RSPB.

Claire Sales

I have been a resident of Cuffley since 2012, though my husband and I grew up in Brookmans Park so have enjoyed village life for as long as I can remember.  I have three children aged 2, 5 and 7 and live within immediate walking distance of my ageing parents.  I am also a commuter so appreciate the challenges that presents.  A safe, friendly community that caters for all ages and interests is very important to me, as is the preservation of the beautiful surrounding countryside which gives so much pleasure to myself and my family.
