Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Bow

Bow is situated in east London, in the borough of Tower Hamlets. It is 5.9 miles from the centre of London. In the early 12th century, a bowed bridge was built; and this is thought to have been the first stone bridge in the country. Thus the origins of the name "Bow," which is a shortening of the medieval name Stratford-at-Bow. 
In the 14th century, Bow was a small village that did not always have easy access, because it was often flooded by the River Lea. There was a need for a church in the area, so in 1311 Bishop Baldock of London licensed the "chapel of ease". In 1327, King Edward III, (r. 1327-1377), granted a piece of land "in the middle of the King's highway", where the chapel was founded. At this time, the church was on an island. 
During the reign of Queen Mary Tudor, or Mary I, (r. 1553-1558), in 1556, a group of Protestants who became known as the Stratford Martyrs, were burned at the stake, during the English Reformation. Prisoners from Newgate would be transported to Bow church, and burned in the church grounds. During her reign, Queen Mary Tudor ordered the execution of almost 300 Protestant heretics.  
In the 17th century, Bow, like many parts of east London, had dangerous or unpleasant smelling trades. These were not welcome in the centre of the city. One example was a thriving trade in the slaughter of cattle. Curiously, cattle bones mixed with clay was the ingredient for Bow Porcelain. This very delicate blue and white porcelain proved to be popular.  
During the reign of Queen Victoria, (r. 1837-1901), Sylvia Pankhurst established the East London Federation of Suffragettes in Bow Road. She helped local residents, for example, in the 1880s the Bryant and May factory held a match girls' strike. Women in the factory were dissatisfied with conditions: they worked for 14 hours a day for very low pay. Many became ill with "phossy jaw", from working with dangerous phospherous. Their strike was taken seriously, and conditions improved at the factory.
In 1850, Bow station was opened by the East and West India Docks and Birmingham Junction Railway company. This first station operated until 1944. In 1858, Bromley-by-Bow station was opened by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. Now it is an Underground station, on the District and Hammersmith & City line. In 1876, Bow Road station was opened by the Great Eastern Railway. It closed and re-opened over the years. In 1902, Bow Road became an Underground station, and is currently on the District and Hammersmith & City lines. It is now interlinked as an out of station interchange, with Bow Church station on the Docklands Light Railway.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Bow

In the summer, I went to Victoria Park with my family. We enjoyed a walk and there were lovely lakes, fountain and a Chinese Pagoda. Then we had a nice picnic in the park.
