What We've Been Up To Recently

This week is Gas Safety week

This week marks National Gas Safety week which runs from 13-18 September. Gas safety week aims to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of gas appliances.
Pedder understand the vital role that the regular checking of gas boilers and appliances play in ensuring that the gas is safe to use in the 1800 properties that we engage with across South East London.  
Research provided by Gas Safe suggests that up to 1 in 6 homes could have a dangerous gas appliance. In particular, people should take steps to ensure that ventilation around appliances should never be blocked.  A yellow flame or any signs of soot near the flame are often a sign of a problem and professional advice should be sought.
Landlords are reminded that Gas appliances need to be checked every year, a service we provide to our clients. Please speak to our property management team for more information.

Brockley news - Beecroft Garden School news

2021 saw Pedder start their relationship with Beecroft Garden School in Brockley, and we were delighted to receive this update from Clare, one of the 'Friends of Beecroft Garden' team.

Although Beecroft Garden Primary have been unable to do their usual fundraising events due to the pandemic they have been committed to supporting their local community.
An event early on in lockdown saw live cookery classes happening over zoom, with donations to a fund,  which meant that food parcels and Xmas presents could be provided to those who are part of our wider Beecroft family.
Our next challenge, as the pandemic continued was how to find new ways to raise money. The school were keen to provide a newer up to date range of books which help bring diversity to the forefront of the curriculum. They decided on a wish list of books which parents could buy for their child’s class, and through support from Pedder and their boards, the Friends of Beecroft (FOBs) will now match fund all book purchases made.
Thanks to Pedder we are able to help Beecroft replenish the schools library with a range of books that will instil in our children the importance of different cultures and seeing themselves represented in the books they read

Kingswood Summer Fair 2018

The Kingswood Primary School Summer Fair was a great community event which involved a whole new group of volunteers who did an amazing job in delivering a very well run, and profitable day out. We were able to raise a total of £4.5k, and just short of £3k after all food, arts and crafts, games and ad hoc purchases. The Pedder Board funds raised £1,020, which is a great contribution to the fair result and will help the school and the community tremendously. We thank you very much for the continuous support and hope to work again together soon in the next fair.
