THE GARDEN CLASSROOM

Report on The Garden Classroom’s – Summer on the Green – August 2019

Lovell very kindly contributed £500 towards our Summer on the Green programme which ran on Newington Green over three weeks in July and August this year. Although the weather was more changeable than last year we only had to postpone on one occasion when heavy rain was forecast all day. Apart from that we found that parents/carers dodged the showers and joined us for as long as they could.

We continued with our themed days with each day having a different nature focus. The programme was free and children of any age accompanied by an adult, were welcome to drop in and stay for as long as they liked.   The sessions which lasted from 10.00-2.00 were very well attended with an average of 25 children coming along each day accompanied by older siblings and parents or grandparents. The children were evenly split between boys and girls and 0-5 year olds and 6-12 year olds. On the few very hot days the families who came from the adjacent tower blocks were particularly glad to have the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the shade of tree-lined Newington Green. Many of them brought picnic lunches and stayed for the day, making new friends and staying after we had closed for the day.

Here’s some of the feedback from parents:

EXCAVATION WORKS FOR THAMES WATER MAINS INSTALLATION

Dear Residents,

We write to inform you as part of the renovation works at Dover Court Estate we will begin excavation works to Baxter Road. These works will take place at the front of Warley House for the new Thames Water mains to Block G. These works are due to commence on Tuesday 25th June and should take approximately 5 working days to complete. Please note that the backfilling works will not be completed until Monday 1st July.

Due to the ground works this may result in an increase of noise levels. Whilst these works take place we will be monitoring the noise levels and we’ll do everything we can to complete these works as quickly as possible. Access to your property or parking will not be affected as all works will be properly protected and you should be able to park in the bay allowing access for other vehicles as well.

We apologise for any inconvenience you may experience whilst these works are being carried out and we are committed to providing the residents with the highest level of service.

If you have any queries related to the on going works, please do not hesitate to contact me on the details below.

Yours faithfully

Westcliff Landscaping

We are writing to update you on the progress of works to the Westcliff green space.

Week commencing 6th May Lovell started the reduce dig to ensure this area is level. Week commencing 13th May the new turf commenced and should be complete by Friday 17th May. Please be aware that freshly laid turf needs 2 weeks to establish, to ensure this area develops well we ask that no one walks on or uses this area. Lovell will also erect a barrier around this area and sign post it.

We would also like to inform you that the final resin surface to the paths in this area has now changed date. These works are due to take place on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th May, please be aware that the resin will need 12 hours to dry. Therefore we do ask that during this time period you use your back entrance to access and egress your property if your front door is on the footpath.

Works still to be completed in this area are the final light connection and removal of the old existing estate lighting. Unfortunately we can’t give you a date on this yet as we need UKPN to make their final connections before we can complete this section of works. We are also waiting on the furniture to be delivered, this will include benches and play equipment. This is expected to be delivered to site in June, however we still don’t have an exact date. Once we have final dates for the rest of the outstanding works we will write another letter informing you.

During the operation of construction, works will be carried out between the hours of 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on a Saturday. Should you have any queries or concerns, please contact me on 0208 731 3800, alternately write me an email to Alexandra.Robins@lovell.co.uk.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and on going support.
