A family fun day was not only an excuse to keep children entertained, but a chance for parents to learn more about the Housing Regeneration Programme.

Residents from the Waterloo Estate in Romford were invited to the event where youngsters could take part in a number of activities.

From enthusiastically pedalling on smoothie bikes to turn their chosen ingredients to create delicious drinks, to PCSO Sue Sullivan taking children’s’ finger prints and giving crime advice to adults, all sorts of fun was taking place at the weekend.

Care Point also provided advice and support and the council youth bus hosted a variety of activities including balloon modelling and face painting.

Deputy council leader and cabinet member for housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “As well as lots to keep children occupied and enjoying themselves, community engagement officers were available to answer questions from tenants, leaseholders and freeholders about the Housing Regeneration Programme.

“The programme will see the estate regenerated with work due to start in late 2018 as part of our ambitious programme to provide more affordable homes for Havering residents.”
