Welcome to the Hanger Hill Garden Estate and its residents association
The Association is open to all residents of the Estate, whether living in the houses or flats; it is run entirely by volunteers and everyone who lives here is welcome to participate in its work.

Hanger Hill Garden Estate Residents Association (HHGERA) works for everyone who lives or owns property on our Estate. We have two distinct roles - as a community group for everyone who lives here, organising social events and liaising with Ealing Council and other local groups; and as manager of the communally-owned gardens (other than those surrounding the flats), the service roads behind houses, boundaries, fences and trees, and general security issues. We also monitor and respond to planning matters affecting the Estate.
Note that the Association does not manage the blocks of flats on the Estate, which have their own management company (click here for information).
Follow the links on the left for more about the Estate, Association news and useful links to other sites. If you have time, do read the fascinating and often moving history of the Estate -- from the early days when Hanger Hill was open countryside, to successive battles over development plans for the surrounding area.
May 2022 newsletter: Click here to download the May 2022 edition of HHGERA News, the residents association newsletter. We always welcome contributions so do contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea for an interesting story or would like to help produce future editions.
Community events! After the fantastic Jubilee themed community picnic on June 12th (check out the photos on our Twitter feed), we're planning PlayStreets on September 4th (with a back to school theme) and October 30th (Halloween). Everyone is welcome - just come to Monks Drive in the afternoon of those dates to hang out and meet your neighbours. Watch out too for news of community litter picking events following the two very successful ones last year. We need help organising events so please contact email@example.com if you would like to contribute, or to join the informal network of neighbours who keep our Estate clean and tidy between organised litter picking events.
Annual General Meeting: The residents association and Houses Management Board AGMs were held on March 24th. The meeting approved all reports, budgets and accounts, proposals and nominations. Hugh Richards is our new Chair for 2022 and Kate Crossland, his predecessor, stays on as Vice-Chair. Other key decisions were to hold the HHGERA subscription at zero and the Houses service charge at £60, and to approve some important proposed changes to the HHGERA Constitution and gated service roads' rules of use. Click here for the minutes; here for the agenda and meeting papers; and here for minutes and documents from last year's 'virtual' annual meeting.
Support still available: Covid hasn't gone away and the wonderful network of volunteers set up at the height of the pandemic is still there to help out if you need it. 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 .
School street camera enforcement: Cameras have been issuing tickets to any cars that enter the controlled zone of Vale Lane outside Holy Family School during dropping-off and picking-up times (8.15-9.15am and 3-4pm). Exemptions are only available for people who live inside the zone - not the generality of residents on our Estate. We have been assured that the cameras will be turned off during school holidays, but any cars parked in the zone during controlled hours in term time will be ticketed unless they have a permit.
Houses service charge: The charge is again being held at £60 a house for 2022. Please pay promptly, preferably online, when the invoice is delivered - hopefully before the end of May. You can email email@example.com if you have any questions about the service charge and/or don't know how to pay.
Rubbish, recycling and litter: Please be considerate to your neighbours by NEVER parking on service roads, as this blocks the recycling lorries; ONLY putting rubbish into the appropriate bin; picking up any litter you see, and reporting missed collections via the Ealing Council website.
Skip permits: You need a permit to put a skip on any of the service roads that belong to the houses part of the Estate - click here to download the form.
Volunteers needed: Would you like to contribute to our community by joining the volunteers who work to maintain our lovely Estate? It needn't take up much of your time and is a great way to get to know your neighbours. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
