Dozens of residents from Romford’s Waterloo Estate came to a special Family Fun Day on Saturday 23 September.

While children were enjoying themselves their parents were able to get more details about the Housing Regeneration Programme.

The smoothie bikes were in action with youngsters pedalling furiously to turn their chosen ingredients into delicious drinks; PCSO Sue Sullivan took children’s’ finger prints and gave crime prevention advice to adults; Care Point provided advice and support and the youth bus hosted a variety of activities including balloon modelling, face painting and other arts activities.

Deputy Leader of Havering Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “This was the last of this year’s programme of Family Fun Day held across the borough by Housing Services and it proved a great success.

“As well as lots to keep children occupied and enjoying themselves Community Engagement Officers were available to answer questions from tenants, leaseholders and freeholders about the Housing Regeneration Programme which will see the estate regenerated with work due to start in late 2018 as part of our ambitious programme to provide more affordable homes for Havering residents.”
