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.

Beecholme Estate gets
national 5 star rating

I can also announce that the
Beecholme Estate has been given a 5 star rating
 by the national "Clean Britain Award" judges

They took into account the whole environment and the impression visitors get
as well as cleanliness.

Here is the slide presentation about Beecholme I gave
at the
Hackney Homes
Resident Involvement Day
on March 5th 2011
in the Town Hall Assembly Room

...as a movie

NOTE: When you start the movie, the resolution improves
dramatically and it becomes a lot clearer

I would like to thank Hackney Homes and council officers for their support and help in making sure these projects met all procurement, health & safety, fire, resident consultation as well as funding requirements.

The list is quite long but Environmental Improvement Budget (EIB) head Clive Tabor, EIB officer David Mulligan and Joanna Evans along with our Resident Participation Officer Coralie Francis come to mind immediately.

Extra special thanks go to councillor Linda Kelly and Hackney Homes head of procurement John Newton for their unwavering help and support.

I should add, the TRA also holds Fun Days, Day trips (the last to Hastings), bingo and games afternoons in addition to the very successful food growing club.
