THE BENYON ESTATE

News & Insights

From community events and business news to tips on maintaining your garden over the winter, here we have something for everyone. Our community is a busy, active one. We support residents in their own events as well as host special seasonal events in the park at De Beauvoir Square and in the De Beauvoir Block. We also get involved in wider community events such as the Hackney Half Marathon.

Our 'Insights' are written by our expert in-house team and our special monthly guest bloggers who cover some first-hand stories from people in De Beauvoir town. Our news will keep on coming - at The Benyon Estate there is never a dull day!
