Residents of the Holland estate marked Car Free Day on Sunday 22 September with the opening of a new play area.
Members of the Holland Estate Management Board had played a lead role in the redevelopment of the play area for the estate, working with designers JailMake to develop an area perfect for the young residents of the estates and fitting with its surroundings. EMB members Tim Elliott was nominated for a Housing Heroes award in the Tenant Innovator category for his commitment and vision to the project.
John Henderson, Managing Director said:
EastendHomes is delighted with Holland Estate’s new innovative play space. It is testament to the vision of the Holland Estate Resident Board who have driven the project with ideas, creativity, collaboration and fun. They have created a unique play environment for their community to enjoy and how appropriate to celebrate its official opening on London’s Car Free Day with a special Play Street event. Congratulations to all the residents who made it happen.
The area has also been re-planted with a variety of native species, plus some nectar-rich plants to attract local pollinators.
