Ellisons takes gold and silver in the 2016 allAgents property awards

Their ambition to provide a superior sales experience and exemplary customer service has been rewarded by the general public in the UK’s largest award scheme for estate and lettings agents. The awards reward property companies based on reviews from real house buyers, renters, tenants, and landlords, meaning Ellisons have been chosen based on feedback from their very satisfied customers!

It’s one of the many qualities that makes buying, selling or letting a property with us unique. We’re thrilled that our teams have been recognised for all their hard work, and we would like to say a huge thank you to all our wonderful customers for providing such positive feedback.’

In that time we have delivered over 400 events, invested over £2.5million, saved over 1,000 tonnes of CO2 and lobbied to reduce the impact of Crossrail 2 on the town centre. It is funded by businesses and is a not for profit company serving and working to improve the area for businesses, visitors and residents.
All BID levy paying businesses are automatically company members and are encouraged to put themselves forward to sit on Love Wimbledon’s project steering groups and Board.
Love Wimbledon has a baseline agreement with Merton Council which ensures its improvements and services are over and above those provided by the Council.
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) have now been operating across the UK for over a decade. A BID is a legal body formed under the Local Government Act 2004. There are over 220 BIDs across the UK and Love Wimbledon works closely with its BID neighbours in Kingston, Sutton, Croydon and across London.

Wimbledon businesses can take advantage of a range of services offered by London Re-Use, an organisation which aims to reduce landfill and pollution by recycling re-usable office items.
The UK throws away over 1.5 tonnes of bulky waste each year which is destined for landfill or incineration. The vast majority of this is furniture or white goods of which an estimated 51% is either re-usable, or would be subject to minor repairs. This waste squanders resources, pollutes the environment and costs money. But all businesses could benefit from recycling uwanted office items. London Re-Use collects items from your premises, refurbishing and recycling them, and then offering them to other businesses at a much lower price than new items would cost.

On 14 September UK Power Networks began emergency works to repair a fault in the power cables running underneath the pavement along The Broadway in Wimbledon Town Centre, outside the entrances to Wimbledon Station, Centre Court and Tesco. This work was due to be completed within seven days but it is still ongoing as they unfortunately identified other issues as the works progressed due to the age of the cables. These cables supply electricity to residents and businesses in the town centre and further afield and we are hopeful this will resolve some of the ongoing electricity supply issues businesses have experienced in the town centre.
Love Wimbledon has been lobbying both Merton Council and UK Power Networks on a regular basis to understand the extent of this work, applying pressure to ensure the work is completed as a matter of urgency, with minimal disruption to the town centre whilst also requesting that the area is cleaned and returned to its original state swiftly upon completion of the works. We have now been informed the work is due to complete on 10 October. UK Power Networks has already laid some of the area with tarmac as a temporary measure until the arrival of matching replacement paving slabs, which we understand are currently on order.
We can assure you we will be requesting regular updates from UKPN until this work is completed.
