Residents at Agar Grove kick off summer with Hill and Camden Council’s fun day!
Last week residents of all ages at Agar Grove were invited to come together for a fun day which celebrated the completion of phase 1 of the Agar Grove regeneration.
The fun day was held in partnership between Hill and Camden Council, and residents were able to enjoy a BBQ and ice creams, as well as a bouncy castle, music, fairground stalls and an inflatable penalty shoot-out. The children also got to get creative with craft activities, including painting murals and colouring in Hill houses.
Agar Grove is the largest project in Camden’s Community Investment Programme, a 15-year plan to invest money in schools, homes and community facilities. At the event, residents were able to see pictures of the first completed homes and were able to visualise what to expect when the next phases are complete. Hill are delivering the first two phases of the six phase project.
We are delighted to see the first phase of affordable new homes complete at Agar Grove, which are all built to a high energy efficient standard. Camden Borough Council are well known for their commitment to achieving the highest levels of sustainability and energy efficiency in their buildings so we are thrilled to have been able to work with them on this project and look forward to continuing to do so on the next phase of 57 homes.
It’s perfect for me and perfect for my family. Never did we expect we’d ever be anywhere so good, it’s like a dream come true
Our new place is much better than where we were before. It’s so nice that it makes leaving difficult in the morning, of course it’s also great to look forward to coming home as well.
As well as new homes on the estate, the Community Investment Programme will be funding communal gardens and play areas, each of which has been designed with the help of residents. During the event, residents were also able to find out about an upcoming consultation for a public art project on the development.
