Residents for Thornton’s Lambeth Living estates were brought together by our three councillors to discuss improving services.
Councillors Ed Davie, Diana Morris and Lib Peck had been concerned that the Tenants and Residents Associations that had served the area well in the past were not meeting as frequently if at all.
As a result they invited people who live on the Weir, Sinclair, Poynders and Thornton Gardens estates to come and talk to them and Lambeth Living officers about working together to improve their environments.
Lambeth’s Labour council is investing hundreds of millions of pounds in improving estates like these across the borough. Thornton’s local councillors are making sure the ward gets its fair share and already work to replace kitchen and bathrooms is taking place on Poynders Estate with new doors and windows on the Weir having been installed a few years ago.
Diana welcomed people to the Weir Link, an abandoned laundry transformed into an active community centre by council and Labour government investment and said that it was vital that residents gave their views on how things were going and any problems that occurred.
