Our annual resident garden party took place at the Albany in Deptford on Saturday 31 August. This year the occasion also marked the celebration of 100 years of social housing, with a display of pictures and stories from Lewisham Homes residents over the years.
There was a great turn out during the day as those who attended were able to soak up the sun and enjoy entertainment for all ages including live music, arts and crafts, family theatre and delicious BBQ food.
Our garden party is one of the highlights of our year and alongside the fun we also held an awards ceremony as awards were given to residents for categories including: the good neighbour award, creative community engagement, outstanding personal achievement, inspirational community project and the Love Where You Live award.
We also had stalls at the event from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Be Inspired Lewisham and the London Fire Brigade, all delivering important and helpful advice to our residents.
The day was a great success and as always gave residents an opportunity to give feedback and receive advice from our staff. We’re looking forward to next year’s event already.
