I am moving into the SE1 - Tabard Gardens Estate - and wanted to get some general feedback on the area. I know Borough, Bermondsey Street and Tower Bridge Road areas pretty well and wanted to get a feel for the estate. Is there a residents assoc? Is there neighhood watch around the estate?
There are three Tabard Gardens Tenants & Residents Associations respectively covering the North, Central and South parts of the estate. They represent all categories of residents, leaseholder and tenant - whether Council or other. Two of them have their Annual General Meetings tomorrow and next week, while the third will have a regular meeting shortly. Pending your move onto the estate you could attend your future TRA meeting as a (non-voting) observer.
To find out which Association applies you could ring me (0207 403 1697 - if I'm out pl. leave your number & block name, or street name if it's Pilgrimage St.) Alternatively you could ring the Council's Resident Involvement Manager Ms. Yetunde Ayanwale on 0207 367 6031.
