Q&A with Rebecca

What does it mean to you to be chosen as one of the Women that Make Mayfair?

It feels great to be recognised for my contribution and makes all the hard work feel that little bit more worthwhile. That said l could not have done it without the help of a supportive team. 

How long have you been working in Mayfair?

I have lived in Mayfair for just over 20 years moving into the area on the longest day of the year at the beginning of the new millennium. Somehow it felt appropriate.  

What is your favourite spot in Mayfair?

I particularly like being surrounded by all of the beautiful plants on the top of Brown Hart Gardens. It is a small oasis in the middle of Mayfair and being a true city girl at heart l can still get a quick caffeine fix at the Mercato cafe or step across the road to the colony room at the fabulous Beaumont for a quick G&T later in the evening. 

What is one of your proudest moments from your current role?

This past year has proved to be an extremely challenging one for many people including those of us living on the Grosvenor Mayfair Estate. Very early on during the first lockdown l had several conversations with a number of colleagues at Grosvenor who asked how they could best support our part of the community.  

As a number of people were feeling isolated l asked for compost and some plants as we have a number of courtyards and flat rooftops. I thought it might provide people with an outlet since the older residents in particular couldn’t really leave their homes. It was a hugely successful project as lots of people took up gardening and pretty much all of our spaces are fully planted and blossoming.
We also succeeded in winning one of the Spacehive awards this past summer so we have continued to build up our green spaces which has added to everyone’s sense of well-being. 

What is something great about Mayfair which everyone should know?

Mayfair is a bi-word for exceptional service in all sectors and operates as a thriving village with a big heart and many hidden gems which you need to discover for yourself.
