CORONAVIRUS - important updates
If you are self-isolating or shielding*, or unable to get out and about for other reasons, more than 30 of our wonderful neighbours have volunteered to help with:
- Collecting medication
- Posting letters
- Dog walking
- A friendly phone call
We know many of you are already supporting neighbours. However, if you do need some help, if you would like to join in this community effort or if you are concerned about someone living on the Estate please:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or
- Telephone Dion Hitchcock on 07515 029725
Go to the bottom of this page for more information and links, and in the meantime enjoy the photos below (by local residents MC and Dion) of the wonderful, socially distanced concert we hosted on August 30th in support of Help Musicians. You can still donate via https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chamberconcerts.

Both have been delivered by hand to all houses and flats.
* Shielding means you are in a vulnerable group and have been told not to go out.
We held a 'virtual' Annual General Meeting
The AGM at Holy Family school on March 26th was cancelled. Instead, we held a 'virtual' AGM with paper and email voting on the AGM documents below. All proposals were approved unanimously, so we can keep things going for another year. Click here for the draft minutes: key decisions included electing the Association officers and approving a £60 per house service charge contribution for 2020.
Houses service charge collection
Invoices were delivered during May for the annual service charge paid by all houses on the Estate. This has been held at £60 a house for 2020 and is due on receipt of invoice, including any arrears from previous years. Following a careful Coronavirus risk assessment, we have decided not to come and collect payment in person and reminders were delivered in August. If you still haven't paid, please do so immediately and by bank transfer if possible. Full details are on the invoice delivered to your door or will be sent again if you email email@example.com. Please do not ignore this - the money is needed to cover essential outlays on things that benefit us all, including the communal gardens, insurance, service road gates... and this website.
