Northbourne Action


In October 2006, N.A.G's (Northbourne Action Group) was formed, with a committee of 5 residents from the Northbourne estate, Godalming.  Over the next two years NAGs grew and moved from strength to strength, reducing antisocial behaviour on the estate by a massive 30% and crime to almost zero.

There are now 12 NAGS, mums and dads who give their free time to provide events and activities for the children and the community on the estate.  NAGs has won 4 Awards so far and are proud to say that the community spirit and the general appearance of the estate has improved dramatically. NAGs are proud to live in Northbourne and strive to make it a better, happier and comfortable place to live.
