Earlier this month we held an event in South Thamesmead to celebrate the improvements made to the outdoor spaces in Parkview and Southmere estates where we’ve been working closely with residents to co-design the spaces.

We wanted to meet with residents face-to-face to get their thoughts and feedback on our future plans as well as their suggestions for the types of improvements we can make going forward.

There were activities for the whole family to enjoy on the day, including: slide testing where residents got to try out a new slide and let us know where they thought it should be permanently located; play activities for children; planting in the edible garden with our gardener-in-residence, Georgiana; and plug planting on Abbey Way with the Youth Eco Development Council; alongside a delicious barbeque courtesy of local business Back-a-Yard Grill!

We captured some great moments on the day. Scroll down to see some of the highlights below.
