Who are we?

Our Convent Management Committee would like to introduce themselves. If you haven’t done so yet, please come and meet us at the General Meetings and the Annual General Meeting (A.G.M.).

Hi, I’m Maureen, devoted owner of Freddie, my Jack Russell Terrier. I have lived here since 2007 and like the friendly atmosphere on the estate. The trees and green spaces make it a very nice place to live

I am Farrokh Hessamian and have lived on the estate since 2007 with my wife and son. We love the calm and green atmosphere of the estate. I became a member of the management committee to have a role in enhancing the quality of life. I believe our estate enjoys a unique position in developments going on in Wandsworth.

I’m Monica and the current Chair for the Co-op. I have lived on Ericcson Close since it was built and was the first family in. As you can probably tell, I love the estate. My children have all moved away now and I enjoy keeping busy with various committee responsibilities

Hello – I’m Janet, and have lived on the Estate for 30 years, so have seen a lot of changes, the best ones seeing the kids growing up and enjoying a nice, safe place to live. I’ve done a stint as Secretary, and now am the Treasurer on the Committee. I enjoy travelling (when work allows!), going to the gym in an attempt to keep fit, and generally socialising!

I’m Jane and have lived in a flat here since 1999.  I love the trees and wildlife on the estate, am keen on the great outdoors, and tend to cycle and spend free time doing conservation work in Richmond Park and developing my art.

I’m Lydia and have been actively involved in the community for some time, serving and giving a listening ear when needed. I love the cohesiveness, peace and support of our Co-op, and hope for this to continue well into the future. I am very hands-on, I care about this community and hope my contributions can help it to be a better place for all to live.

Hi, I’m Nick. My family and I have lived on the estate since 1999. We have seen what the Co-op brings to the estate and I want to be part of protecting and continuing that.

Hi, I’m Andrej and I joined the Co-op management committee because I believe in the ethos of co-op management. I’m happy to provide my skills and strengths to ensure we can keep managing our space and make improvements for all residents.

Hello – I’m Sue. I joined the committee because I believe it is important for us to remain a co-op. I want to help strengthen our systems, build links between residents, and develop and enhance strategies that will enable our estate to thrive.
