Residents of Belvedere Park in Bexley, London, joined together to establish a Residents’ Association followed by afternoon tea on the lawn.  Belvedere Park is a new and developing community with Pinnacle PSG delivering housing management services.

Staff from the Pinnacle PSG Mixed Tenure team supported residents to set up a Residents’ Association to enable the community to work together and have a stronger voice when addressing any key issues arising.  After the meeting, over 65 residents joined together in the sunshine to enjoy refreshments, games and a bouncy castle on the lawn organised by the team.

Newly elected chair of the Belvedere Park Residents’ Association, Laura Fyffe said “It’s great to have the opportunity to meet my neighbours and talk to other residents.  Social events like this help bring the community together and residents feel more connected.  We hope to have lots more events like this as new residents move in and our Belvedere Park community grows.”

Last month, Year Two children from the St Augustine’s Primary School in Westminster were invited to participate in planting an allotment area in the Tollgate Gardens estate.

30 school children attended the ‘Green Fingers Club’ and enjoyed learning how to plant their own flowers and discovering creepy crawlies like worms and bugs.

It is hoped that the new allotments will brighten up an unused space in the Tollgate Gardens estate and enable the residents to learn how to grow their own vegetation.

Head Mistress of the St Augustine’s Primary School, Suzanne Parry, said of the event:  “The children very much enjoyed the opportunity – especially the mini beasts they encountered.”

Three UK-based community projects were the worthy recipients of a share of £1,500 donated by Pinnacle PSG at this year’s Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Annual Conference and Exhibition which took place from the 24th-26th June in Manchester.

The annual conference is the biggest event of its kind in the housing industry calendar, attracting housing professionals, community groups, politicians and residents from across the UK to learn about key issues affecting communities and share best practice. Pinnacle PSG has sponsored and hosted the Community Initiatives Café within the exhibition for the past six years.

Over the course of the three day event, the Café showcases six community projects supported by local authorities, housing associations or community groups which are in need of funding. Each day of the conference two of the community groups take to a stage within the Café to explain to delegates why they should win money towards their project. Visitors to the Café are asked to vote for their favourite project and the one with the most votes at the end of each day is presented with a cheque for £500.

This year over 600 visitors to the exhibition and conference listened to the community groups’ pitches and voted for their favourite to win. All projects were excellent examples of the fantastic work that takes place to enhance communities across the UK.

The winners were:

On Tuesday, a new community garden scheme in the Clapham Park Estate in Lambeth beat a solar panel project in Woking.

On Wednesday, a community fun-day named Farm-tastic! in Hammersmith & Fulham narrowly beat a keep fit outdoors project in Westminster.

On Thursday, Myatt’s Field North’s ‘Jon Judace Arts Workshops’ won the prize money beating Stoke-on-Trent’s Appetite for Drama initiative.

This year the cheques were presented by two prestigious members of the housing community, Steve Stride, President of the CIH and Geraldine Howley, Vice President of the CIH.
