NEPHRA Residents Association is based in New Moston, Manchester, and it is part of the Moston Ward. The first question many people ask is “What does NEPHRA mean?” Well, it surprises many to discover that the name was just made up in a hurry, from the initials of some of the streets we represent! The ‘N’ comes from Northfield Road, the ‘E’ from Elder Grove, the ‘P’ from Parkfield Road North and the ‘R’ and the ‘A’ stand fro Residents Association.
From our humble beginnings n 2004, when a handful of local people got together to clear up a local grot spot, NEPHRA now boasts a membership of over 1000 homes and is run by a committee of local people supported by volunteers of all ages and backgrounds.
