Festive fun for Battersea estates

Published: Monday 19th December 16

A feast of Christmas carols, music, mince pies and more took place in Battersea on Wednesday (14 December) at York Gardens Library and Community Centre, Battersea.

More than 60 people from the Winstanley, York Road, and Kambala estates in the local area attended performances by music charity World Heart Beat; Kevin Prone; Falconbrook Primary School pupils, and the WoW Mums

The event was organised by the council’s Winstanley and York Road estates regeneration team, with seasonal treats from local social enterprise Platform One Café and national charity the Camden Society, and attended by Cllr Paul Ellis, Cabinet Member for Housing, and other elected members.    

As part of its Aspirations programme to improve life chances in the borough, the council is undertaking a major redevelopment of the Winstanley and York Road estates, guaranteeing all tenants and owner-occupiers a newly-built home on their estate along with new community facilities, a new leisure centre and park, a new library, new shops and business space, and employment and training initiatives.  Seventy per cent of consultation respondents supported redevelopment instead of a proposed substantial refurbishment programme.
