VOLUNTEER SUPPORT

The Holly Lodge Estate Committee representing the plots, along with the Community Centre and the Tenants & Residents Association, who represent the flats, have organised a group of kind and willing residents who are acting as volunteers on each street and in each block of flats.

You should have had a note through your letterbox introducing your Street Supporter or Block Rep. They can be contacted to help with shopping, collecting prescriptions etc or just to have a chat if you are anxious or lonely.

If you are struggling to get help then for the Plots please contact the Estate Manager, Barbara Wheatley on 07731 301119 or manager@hle.org.uk  and for the Flats contact Roger Elliott, Secretary HLRA on 020 7209 4734 or hollylodgera@gmail.com.
