Top tenant awarded

In recognition for her hard work in improving the lives and environment of her fellow residents, Anne Moyies has been given the special Maurice Hedden Tenant Participation Award 2004.

Through her many roles, which include the Chair of both the Wimbledon District Panel and the Phipps Bridge Residents’ Association, Anne has encouraged healthy and productive relations between the council and local residents.

Tenant Representatives give up a great deal of voluntary time on behalf of their estates, representing their views at different events. The work and commitment they show has helped shape many of the decisions made by the council.

Paul Ryrie, Head of Housing Services at Merton, said:

“I’ve known Anne for many years and can’t praise her enough for her efforts. She has made sure that residents in Phipps Bridge and across the borough are involved, consulted and listed to, and ultimately has made their homes better places to live.

“She is thoroughly deserving of the Maurice Hedden Tenant Participation Award 2004”.


Notes for Editors:

Maurice Hedden was a former Councillor for the Phipps Bridge Ward and lived in Mitcham for more than 70 years. It is for his work in representing and involving Merton’s Tenants and Residents that he is best remembered, as well as through this annual award, which is named after him.
