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 Little Chalfont

Little Chalfont is a village in south-east Buckinghamshire. It is one of a group of villages known collectively as The Chalfonts, which also comprises Chalfont St. Giles, and Chalfont St. Peter. Little Chalfont is 21.9 miles from the centre of London. The word Chalfont originates from the old English "cealc", for chalk, and "funt", for spring. There is a connection to the wells of the district, that are thickly infused with chalk. The name "chald" emerged, and Chaldfont spoken rapidly became "Chalfont", meaning cold springs.
During the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r. 1066-1087), the Domesday Book of 1086, the name was Celfunte and Celfunde. In the Medieval era, there were many subsequent variations of the spelling: Chaufhunte in 1195, and Chalfunt in 1220.
John Milton, (1608-1674), was one of England's greatest poets. He was also a Parliamentarian; and after Cromwellian times, Charles II, (r. 1660-1685), restored the Monarchy. John Milton was targeted by the king. Criticism of the Monarchy was not tolerated: his father, Charles I, (r. 1625-1649), had been executed by beheading, under instructions of the Parliamentarians. In addition to Milton's difficulties, the outbreak of the Black Death in London, made life there impossible. In 1665, the now blind Milton, and his wife Elizabeth Minshull and probably his daughter, Deborah, came to Chalfont St. Giles, where his Quaker friend Thomas Ellwood, had found him "that pretty box in St. Giles Chalfonte." Although he lived here for less than two years, Milton's Cottage was an important place in the writer's life. Here, he completed Paradise Lost, and was inspired to write its sequel, Paradise Regained. These great works are a testament to the poet's enduring legacy, and universal recognition as one of the world's greatest writers. 
In 1889, during the late Victorian era, Chalfont Road station was opened at the northern side of Chalfont St. Giles Parish, where the parishes of Amersham, Chenies and Chalfont St. Giles met. At the time, the area was remote from the centres of villages and towns. It consisted of isolated farms and cottages, and did not have a specific name.
Little Chalfont originates as recently as the 20th century, and was initiated by the opening of the Metropolitan Railway. A community developed around the station. In 1915, during the reign of George V, (1910-1936), the station was renamed Chalfont & Latimer. It was originally served by steam-hauled Metropolitan Line trains, with a changeover to an electric locomotive at Rickmansworth. Steam trains were finally withdrawn in 1961. The Chalfont & Latimer Underground station we know today, is on the Metropolitan Line.
Little Chalfont remains a desirable place to live, with a high rate of home ownership. Its population has a higher level of residents born in the UK than the national average, and older than the national average.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Little Chalfont

In the summer I visited Little Chalfont Nature Park with my family. We enjoyed a walk, with beautiful woodlands, meadow wildflowers, and some lovely butterflies. Then we had a good, relaxing picnic.
