About the WBRA
The Wandsworth Bridge Road Resident’s and Business Association is a means for those living and working on or near the Wandsworth Bridge Road to have a voice and become involved in local issues that affect their lives, well-being and businesses.
The Wandsworth Bridge Road Association is run voluntarily by a small group of local residents / business owners.
Founded the WBRA in the summer of 2020 in response to the new LTN / TCPR east of WBR. The aim was to establish a means for the local residents and businesses to have a voice in local matters that directly affect them. Since then the Association has grown substantially and continues to make connections with other key local organisations and partnerships.
Gary also is co-owner of Yellow Elephant Designs, a web and graphic design business (having designed the WBRA site amongst countless others) and is a passionate creator.
Natalie has lived on the WBR for 25 years and her 4 kids have grown up on the road.
With a background in project management and entrepreneurship Natalie has worked in the public, private and charitable sectors. She is one of the founders of London Youth Conservatoire, a Fulham based charity music school offering music education to over 250 local students. Natalie worked as a Pollution commissioner with LBHF in 2016/2017 establishing their objectives for pollution reduction which she now wants to see be actively applied.
An environmental campaigner Natalie passionately believes that London can transform itself from a polluted, grid-locked, unhealthy, ecologically impoverished city into a sustainable healthy, active and green city. She is determined to engender this change on the WBR and if it can be achieved here it can be achieved anywhere!
Beatrice works in the Pharmaceutical Industry and has lived on the Wandsworth Bridge Road for 11 years with her young family. Beatrice has a keen interest in the health effects of air pollution and is passionate about reducing car dependency in cities. Beatrice believes that cargo bikes are the solution, having converted a comparatively arduous 20 minute walking/scooting school-run to a safe and easy 5-minute jaunt by cargo bike over 3 years ago, Beatrice has never looked back and has enjoyed the freedom to explore London by bike as a family ever since. Beatrice encourages others to try it too, and is very excited to see more and more cargo bikes appearing each year!
Resident living on the Wandsworth Bridge Road since 2010. As a car free family, Jonathan can often be seen whizzing his children around on his Urban Arrow Family e-cargo bike. Also a chartered Architect with offices located at 312 Wandsworth Bridge Road.
Jonathan has been a core member of the Wandsworth Bridge Road Association since its creation, is a Friends of South Park committee member, a regular attendant of LBHF Business Network meetings and member of the BNI Exchange (Fulham) chapter. From September, Jonathan will be Head Coach for U7s at Hammersmith and Fulham RFC.
Jonathan believes that localised pollution must be reduced with immediate effect on all roads for the health of all. Failure to speedily tackle this in the high street will mean the controlled use of other roads will have to be considered as an alternative.
