D’Eynsford Tenant Management Organisation (TMO)

D’Eynsford Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) logo

D'Eynsford TMO runs a range of estate services including cleaning, repairs, rent collection and grounds maintenance for residents.

The TMO was set up by residents in 2013 and began delivering services in 2015.  The TMO is a membership organisation for residents, led by an elected board of volunteer residents, with the day-to-day work delivered by our paid, professional staff team and specialist contractors.

We are a Living Wage Employer and use a One Planet action plan to ensure we live within a fair share of the earth's resources.

D’Eynsford is a Southwark Council housing estate built in the 1970s with a mix of flats and houses, including some sheltered accommodation. There are 360 homes: 260 are occupied by Council tenants and 100 are leasehold.  There is also a temporary accommodation hostel above the TMO office.

Meetings

Our board meetings are held on the second Monday of every month, 7:00pm-9:00pm, in the Estate Office (Good Neighbours House, 38 Mary Datchelor Close SE5 7AY).

Everyone is welcome, although sometimes the board needs to discuss confidential items in private. We also have three general meetings a year (when members can vote on key issues). All our meeting minutes are published on our website here.

Secret Garden

Everyone’s welcome in our community garden, which is located next to the Kimpton Road entrance to our estate behind KFC.

The garden has been created from an area of waste land that was previously unused. Since 2009 a group of residents have been working to create a garden that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Opening hours

From March to October, the garden is opened by volunteer residents every Friday 3:00pm-5:00pm.  We also have events throughout the year.

What’s in the garden

The garden includes a vegetable patch, greenhouse, flower garden, seating area, wildflower/woodland area and more!

Get involved

Please join us to help with planting, weeding, harvesting or to simply sit and enjoy the garden.  If you don’t know anything about gardening please don’t worry because we are all learning!

Everyone is welcome, and you don’t have to live on the estate. In fact about half the people who come here are residents of Camberwell.

To get in touch about the garden, please contact Kate Traynor on : 020 7708 8696 or e-mail:
