The next two weeks are going to be hectic. But good hectic….
Firstly, officers from the three housing associations who divide up bits of this estate are going to be holding their monthly Drop-In on Tuesday afternoon between 4 and 5pm, in The Hut. On Saturday Councillor John Pierce is holding his Surgery for residents between 11am and 1pm, in The Hut.
Then, on Wednesday, the celebrations start….
The railings have been up around the new play area for several weeks, while behind it land was shifted, turf was laid, sand was imported (not to mention the vast dead tree..).
On Wednesday the railings come down. The children are – appropriately – going to host a tea party for the funders who made this possible. Thank you to all of them – L & Q, Marathon Trust, THH, Trust for London. And of course PATH – Play Association Tower Hamlets – who have steered, managed, supported, inspired the venture throughout.
Come and join in and have a cup of tea on Wednesday, 3.30pm.
And after that – on Sunday October 6th – there’ll be APPLE DAY for all: games, music, fresh apple juice.
And we will dedicate a plaque by the little apple tree that is bursting with fruit and has been planted in memory of Cynthia Charles, a wonderfully generous and vibrant woman who lived in Leopold Buildings and died suddenly a year ago. We celebrate her spirit.
