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.
Autumn newsletter: Click here to download the super new September 2021 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.
School street camera enforcement: Closure of Vale Lane outside Holy Family School during dropping-off and picking-up times (8.15-9.15am and 3-4pm) will become permanent from 11 October and new cameras will issue tickets to any cars that enter the zone during controlled hours. 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 has been held at £60 a house for 2021. Reminders were hand delivered to houses that have not yet paid at the end of August. Please pay promptly and online if possible, including any arrears from previous years. Association officers will visit any houses that have not yet paid following the lifting Covid restrictions. Click here to see the risk assessment for this year's service charge collections. You can email email@example.com if you have any questions about the service charge and/or don't know how to pay.
An event! We held our first event of 2021 - a community litter pick - on Sunday June 13th. Many thanks to everyone who turned out and picked up a huge amount of litter from around the Estate. Thanks also to Ealing Council and the wonderful folk at Lager Can for providing the equipment and collecting the bags afterwards.
Fingers crossed... All being well, Playstreet will be back on Sunday October 31st (2-4pm on Monks Drive) with an afternoon of Halloween-themed play. Everyone is welcome - even adults! Watch for posters around the Estate to confirm the event will go ahead.
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
Annual General Meeting: The residents association and Houses Management Board AGMs were held by Zoom video conferencing app on Thursday 25th 2021. Click here for the minutes and links to all AGM documents.
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 email@example.com to find out more.
