A local tenant management organisation has scooped two gongs at a prestigious national awards ceremony.
The Millbank Estate Tenant Management Organisation (MEMO) claimed top prize in the 'Involving the Community' and 'Initiatives to Tackle Anti-Social Behaviour' categories at the National Federation of Tenant Management Organisations (NFTMO) Awards earlier this month.
The awards were part of a conference held in Stratford-upon-Avon by the NFTMO, an umbrella organisation for resident-led groups which manage their estates independent of councils, which attracted 400 delegates from across the UK.
A total of eight awards were up for grabs on the night, with the Westminster's MEMO claiming a quarter of the spoils.
Wilfried Rimensberger, Chairman of MEMO, said: "Moving from being the leading local tenant management organisation to a being a nationally recognised group is both rewarding and challenging but also exciting.
"Winning these national awards is a nice "sweetener" which we will enjoy as an occasion, but the challenge for us is to carry on improving and remain a beacon for others.
"Despite standing our own corner we recognise that we would not exist without the support from Westminster City Council and CityWest Homes. I can only say thank you to them, to our staff and the many residents who have given their invaluable support to our organisation's success to date and hopefully further progress."
