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 Hornchurch

Hornchurch is situated in east London, in the borough of Havering. It is 15.2 miles from the centre of London. In 1163, a church was built. Over the centuries it has been rebuilt. However, parts of the building from the 14th century, remain. Today it is known as St. Andrew's Church, and is a Grade I listed building. In the medieval period, it was known locally as "the Horned Church," probably because in 1222, a sculpture was made of a bulls head, and placed at the East end of the church roof. This may explain the origin of the name of the early village settlement. In 1824, the copper horns were repaired, as wear and tear must have taken its toll, over the centuries. In 1999, the copper horns were stolen and never recovered. However, they were replaced in 2001. 
In the reign of Henry VIII, (r. 1509-1547), Hornchurch was a large village by Tudor standards, with a population of up to 800. Many villagers made their living from farming. There was also a considerable leather industry in the village, and skinners, tanners and shoemakers worked there.
From the 17th century up to the 19th century, Hornchurch was a quiet, residential area, and ideal for well off people. The village was close enough for them to travel to work by coach and horses. However, it was less dirty and noisy than London.
In the early 19th century, Hornchurch was a large village. At this time, many stagecoaches passed through Hornchurch, to and from London, and there were several inns in the village. 
At the end of the 19th century, the population of Hornchurch was over 4,000. However, by the mid 1920s, it was 12,000. One factor that attributed to the population growth, was the desire for well off people, to live in this affluent area. The other factor was the opening of Hornchurch station in 1885, by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. The station was completely rebuilt in 1932, by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. The station was further developed by the District Railway local service, which was extended from Barking to Upminster. The station we know today, is on the District Line of the Underground.   
By the early 1930s, Hornchurch's population was over 28,000, and it continued to grow. In 1965, Hornchurch's urban district council was replaced, to become part of part of the London Borough of Havering. Today, Hornchurch is a thriving suburb of London. In 2011, the population was recorded at 63,583.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Hornchurch

With my friend, I've booked tickets to see the world premiere of The Flood, by Vickie Donoghue, at the Queen's Theatre. This play is about calling a place home, and what that really means. There are dramatic moments as the story time-hops between 1953, present day and 2053. It looks like there's going to be a strange combination of celebration and tragedy. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the play!
