Parkview Spring Fayre 2019 buffet
What a lovely day we’ve had. There was a lovely buffet, hosted by Ros with many donated dishes from our local community.
I’ve learned how easy it is to make delicious puffed rice at home. The samosas were very spicy and yummy too.
Chillie, sweet peppers and Squash plants
Later in the day two very important visitors from Hackney City Farm, Rita and Ken taught us how to grow sweet peppers, chillies and Squash on our balconies.
Rita explained: “It’s wonderful to watch them grow and then harvest the rewards and be able to eat them at the end of the season.”
Ken from Hackney City Farm in the bee keeper outfit.
Ken, the bee expert taught how bees pollinate plants for a long distance around each hive and it seems plausible to keep bees on estates to help pollinate our plants.
It takes around 600 bees to fill one jar of honey and the bees fly twice around the globe to fill that jar. (equivalent)
Also there was a giveaway of bee friendly flowers for our balconies to help sustain that bee hunger.

Parkview gardeners and potential gardening helpers are cordially invited to help plant fruit trees and raspberry bushes around Parkview Estate.
Please meet with us on Sunday 7 April 2019 between 2 – 3 pm. Initial meeting point is the community garden next to the Glasshouse at 2 pm.
As this historic tree is extremely important to many, Crest Nicholson are now making an increased effort to save this tree.
A letter recently posted through our letter boxes explains that they will be doing the following:
- Ground investigation 5 – 9 November to understand the properties and values of the soil surrounding the tree and to further confirm the extent of the tree root system.
The Tree Officer from Tower Hamlets Councils has agreed to the work being carried out.
Details of the outcome will be made available once interpreted by the team experts and project arboriculturalist.
