More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

This is the first of our quarterly "Enhanced" meetings
of the
Beecholme & Casimir
Tenants & Residents Association
for 2010.

Wed 17th Feb @ 7pm

in the "Alf Partridge Community Hall"
on the corner of Prout Road & Casimir Road

"Enhanced" refers to the fact that our estate manager is present - and usually hackney Homes officers and cllr Linda kelly.


 GROUNDS PROJECT - Phase 1: planting

We will be deciding which planting proposal for the beds we prefer at the meeting.

 Have your say as a Beecholme resident.
After all, you'll be living with the view all year!

We have varying proposals, from informal to formal, all with photos of
the plants they intend to use and the number of
beds each gardening company can do within budget.

 You will be leafleted in the next few days:

£2,500 is from our estate Environmental Improvement Budget '09 from Hackney Homes
and £5,000 is the grant we successfully applied for last year from HCVS

Phase 2  
will be the sculptural seating and pure sculptures
we hope to consult you about again in a few weeks time.
The concept/preferred sculptor and basic plans were tackled last year,
hoping the grounds planting then sculptures would be done at the same time.
Hopefully it won't be too long. It depends entirely on the funding.

See last years posts:


We are lucky to have Wendy Allen designing the beds for us
on behalf of the Grass Roof Co.
