Activities

Key groups & activities organised by the Association

The Gayton Residents Association organises a wide number of activities fostering our neighbourhood's community spirit and diverse cultural backgrounds.


Flower Baskets


Gayton Road is the only street in Hampstead to have hanging flower baskets. These are fully paid for & maintained by the residents. We are always looking for volunteers to help maintain the flower baskets, in particular watering them daily.

Wine Tasting
