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 ETRA meeting 19th May

Enhanced TRA meetings have our Estate Manager, Hackney Homes officers and (most times) councillor Linda Kelly attending.

At this meeting we will be deciding the EIB projects, the summer day trip, the pramsheds and the upcoming 184 walkabout among other things.

About the TRA
The TRA is here primarily to represent residents and to ensure the estate is run and looks the way we want (within certain guidelines and rules) so your opinion is important. You can come to any TRA meeting or contact me, David White (TRA Secretary) on 0208 806 3731 or email:

If you live on the Beecholme Estate and have any queries, problems or issues of any kind, your first port of call is our Estate Manager Esther Ojimba (0208 356 6552), however, the TRA is also here to help and can liaise with officers on your behalf if we can't deal with the problem directly.

If you have an ASB report and think something might be on CCTV, please note the exact time of the incident or get as close as you can.

It is a real problem looking through 24 hours of video simple because it takes so long. Often the incident is only a few seconds so officers viewing can't fast forward at more than 2x or they risk missing it. That means someone has to sit in front of a screen for 12 hours to review 24hrs of footage, per camera!!

Obviously this isn't a practical proposition  so noting the time of the incident is critical.

I am glad to say we've had very few incidents on the estate over the last 6 months - lets hope it stays that way.
