Your local councillors joined in a recent spring clean of the Poynders Gardens Estate in the ward.
Lambeth council’s Freshview team joined Lambeth Living staff and contractors to make repairs, clean, paint and generally spruce up the communal areas of the residential blocks.
Tenants and resident association representatives helped direct the efforts along with councillors Ed Davie, Diana Morris and Lib Peck.
Lib, who is the council cabinet member for housing, said: ‘We became aware that residents of estates across the borough were unhappy with the repairs of communal areas of our estates so we have come up with this method of bringing everyone together to tackle a single estate on one day
‘This approach is having a real impact improving our estates and the environment residents live in and another sign of better service to residents.’
Diana, who has campaigned for a long time to get the rubbish disposal systems improved on the estate, said: ‘It is really heartening to see our efforts pay off and a concerted effort made to deal with a range of problems all at once. That’s not the end of the story, though. We will be working hard over the coming months to make sure that all the repairs that were initiated on the Clean Up Saturday are followed through.’
Local councillors are now keen to get the communal garden areas up and running again on the estate and would love to hear from residents who want to start growing vegetables and flowers.
