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.

Volunteering recognised

I am happy to report that both Michael Shore and I were nominated for one of the Mayor's volunteering awards and that we have both been given the award.

We have been asked to submit photos for the Team London website, as well as London24, which we have done, so expect to see them up soon, along with a note about our individual volunteering work.

When they are up on the website I'll put the link here.

In the meantime, here are our award certificates

Michael volunteers at a hospice, the HU3A and the TRA. I volunteer with the TRA, the Clapton Residents Panel and the Clapton Arts Trust. We both also contribute time to a range of local issues and campaigns, ranging from planning to residents rights, helping individual residents in need, often with help & support from councillor Linda Kelly or councillor Ian Rathbone.
