Join the Co-op

Become a Co-op member and have your say in how the Estate is managed.

Residents over the age of 18 are encouraged to join the Wimbledon Park Co-operative by buying a lifetime membership in the Co-operative, which costs £1.

All council tenants and leaseholders can join the Co-op although currently only one person per household can be a member.

Private tenants who have lived on the Estate for more than 12 months can become a member so long as their landlord is not a member.

If you are not sure whether you can join, please contact the Estate Office.

As a member you can vote at all General Meetings and stand for election to the Management Board.

Members influence what happens on the Estate and what our priorities should be for the future. The more residents who are members, the more representative the Co-operative is of our community.

Contact the Estate Office to join.

The Management Board

The Management Board is made up of volunteer residents of the Estate, and is responsible for employing Estate Office staff and contractors and running the Estate on your behalf.

The Board meets at least quarterly and has various sub-committees to carry out its work. One-third of the Board members stand down at the Annual General Meeting to encourage new members to stand for election.

If you are interested in joining or learning more about the Board, contact the Estate Office.

Current Board members are: Mary Cunningham (chair), Hugo Pastor (Treasurer), Annelise Jespersen (secretary), Linda Stevens, Stephen Johnson, Assetou Nimaga.
