It was all fun and games in Northolt’s Rectory Park as local residents came together for our Fun Day on Saturday 30 July.
Over 350 residents from the Rectory Park Estate attended our event, where had a variety of lively and entertaining activities on offer, including karaoke, a magic show, a ‘design your own home’ competition and a rare exhibition of model planes from the Rectory Park Model Flying Club.
Residents also had the chance to meet the architects and view the latest designs for the estate, which is being redeveloped by Network Homes in a major £100m regeneration project to bring an additional 170 new homes to the local area.
Former Ealing Mayor Tej Bagha was a special guest and took part in a formal turf cutting ceremony to launch phase three of the regeneration programme.
Helen Evans, chief executive of Network Homes, said: “It was fantastic to see so many of our Rectory Park residents having fun with their families and neighbours, and getting to know each other better as a community. They also had the opportunity to discover the plans for the next phase of the building work. Today has been a wonderful opportunity for staff to meet our local residents in a relaxed setting.”
The development is due to be completed in March 2020, and will comprise a mix of one to four bedroom properties, with an even spread of homes including social rent, affordable rent, affordable shared ownership and private sales.
