In the SE1 Direct newsletter 183 today, I notice that the Director of Tabard Gardens
TMC, John Everett is giving a talk tomorrow night......Monthly meeting open to residents of Cathedrals and
Chaucer wards. John Everett, manager of the Tabard
Tenant Management Organisation, will speak on how the
estate/area is changing, what problems residents face,
what is improving and what still needs to be done.
Since John Everett took over the TMC the progress has been amazing after years of neglect. All residents of Northfleet House have had in the last month -- new kitchen cabinets, sink, floor, boiler, radiators, smoke detector -- all working perfectly.
And at the moment the landings and stairwells are being painted and in August we get new windows.
And the grassy areas are being landscaped at the moment at Balin House (Long Lane
) and I assume all other areas will follow.
At last Area 1 is being tidied up and we don't have to be embarassed that visitors will think they have arrived in a dump.
After years of squabbling in the TMC and nothing being done, John Everett has achieved more in a year than Alison Parr did in 8 years.
Well done John Everett.
