Residents meeting

Yesterday’s residents meeting was very well attended and I would like to thank all those who contributed to the discussion. Councillor Sirajul Islam also came and enriched the meeting, which was very well led by our chair Cathrine Powell.

People are invited to participate in groups around

  • cycle storage
  • gardening

There is a particular green conscience with residents suggesting a green belt with fruit trees and shrubs. Any bare spots on the estate can be planted up, please get in touch.

There are still problems remaining from the botched Mayor Works program, please contact our Residents Association with your comments about this.

Recycling rates should be increased and more efforts need to be made to put the correct items into the recycling bins.

Support was pledged to keep Raine’s Foundation school open.

Please also see our ASB page for advice on how to report problems.

Please go to our contact page to get in touch if interested. You may also request addition to the Residents Association mailing list.

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.
