Brixton Chamber Orchestra performs at St Matthews Estate


The Brixton Chamber Orchestra was in full swing as they touched down at St Matthews Estate during the festive period. The residents were treated to some seasonal classics with the ensemble in fine form. The Orchestra went on to tour other estates throughout the borough with family friendly free entry shows.

Rosendale Gardens Youth Project


On 18 December the Rosendale Garden Youth Project came to a close with a Christmas get together for everyone involved with the project. Fun was had with the group which included a table tennis competition, connect four (proved very popular) and computer game battles.

Renee Okuefuna who is a youth services project coordinator went on to say “I was very pleased with how the programme has gone. This is the first time that the Rosendale Gardens Estate has benefitted from an extensive youth programme. All the young people involved live on the estate. They very much enjoyed sharing experiences and meeting new friends”.

Tivoli Road community garden


A community garden has been created recently at Tivoli Road in Norwood, close to Holderness Estate. 

Father Nature were commissioned to progress the Tivoli Road community garden project as part of the ‘Our Street Knight Hill’ programme in partnership with the residents of the estate.  


There were a series of meetings held at the Hook House community hall which galvanised interest from both estate and private residents surrounding the site. On Saturday 14 December residents and Father Nature carried out a planting day.
