Yet, how materials are removed from complex buildings which are not tall remains a question, as does whether there is any funding for interim remedial measures. The £500 million hardship fund for local councils to support the most vulnerable in their areas affected by COVID-19 is a very good idea, and we hope an [...]

Minister of State for the Department for Work and Pensions Will Quince visited our Hackney site at Kingsland Hub last week in a visit organised by Kate Henderson, CEO of the National Housing Federation.

50th Anniversary: Party in the Park


On Sunday 22nd September we celebrated our 50th Anniversary at a well attended Party in the Park. The celebration took place in Clissold Park as part of their 130th anniversary celebrations. We made our home on the old Bowling Green on a windy day with showers, which made it difficult to put up our gazebos, but with persistence we succeeded and the celebrations lasted all afternoon. We were delighted to see so many people despite the rain and the day did brighten up so we were able to eat lovely Caribbean food, take part in a quiz about 1969, and dance off some of the delicious anniversary [...]
