Somerford and Shacklewell Estate wins Best Estate Garden award!
Congratulations to Somerford and Shacklewell Estate in our ward for wimming the Best Estate Garden award in a London wide competition - Edible Estates.
Somerford and Shacklewell was recognised for the dedication residents have shown to improving communal areas and getting people involved in the project. Anyone who has walked through the estate recently will see first hand the fruit trees, raised beds and plots of land covered with sunflowers, beans and peas, nasturtiums and cabbages!
Well done to Alex, Hedvig, Robin and TRA Chair Yolanda and all the residents who got involved for this fantastic achievement. More about the award in the Evening Standard here.
At 2pm tomorrow in the old factory site on Shacklewell Road there will be a Hallowe'en themed fun day with facepainting, apple bobbing, pumpkin carving and lots more! It will also be a good opportunity to sign up and get involved with the Growing Club on the estate.
