Residents were invited to attend the yearly fun day at Colville. The event is organised by the Colville Estate Tenants and Residents Association (CETRA) supported by Hackney Homes officers.
More than 150 people enjoyed live music, barbecued food, and a spot of gardening while finding out more about Hackney Council’s regeneration of Colville on 12 July. CETRA talked about the proposals from the perspective of tenants and leaseholders, residents were also able to see designs and models for the third phase of Colville’s regeneration. The appointed architects, were on hand to answer questions about the programme, along with Council officers, while Hackney Homes and police officers provided information on their services.
A temporary new community garden at Kellett House was launched by Cllr Philip Glanville, Cabinet Member for Housing, who planted a sunflower as part of the green-fingered activities on the day.
A new and permanent site for the community garden will be created as part of Colville’s regeneration.
