Seated yoga in the hub
On Wednesday 17th July at 11am, please join Claire from Yoga Radiance who will be at the hub to do a chair yoga session for residents to take part in. The session is free and open to all ages. The session will be a gentle introduction to seated yoga. We hope to see you there!
Update from contractors
You will have received a separate newsletter from St James who are in charge of construction of phase one. The different sites are at different stages and there will be moderate noise due to the change in machinery in Site 1. Greening planters have been added to enhance the appearance of the area. There will also be flowers planted by the project administrator. Forthcoming works include drainage and excavation work to reduce piles.
Come in to the Engagement Hub at 7 Forvant Close to speak to Homes for Lambeth Officers about the regeneration of Westbury Estate.
Every Tuesday from 4pm – 6pm
The Hub, 7 Forvant Close
News from the Independent Advisors
Hopefully you are all enjoying some nice summer weather by the time you read this article. The regeneration is moving forward and we are reaching some important milestones. The Council’s Decant Team has been meeting with tenants to discuss and allocate their new homes. For residents it’s beginning to feel a lot more “real”. We supported tenants by attending some of these meetings. So far tenants seem pleased with what they’re being offered.
We’ll be out and about visiting residents on the following dates:
Wednesday 10th July
afternoon or early evening session
Wednesday 24th July
afternoon or early evening session
Please get in touch if you’d like a home visit on any of the above dates.
