The sun came out for us as Hexagon hosted the second of its Neighbourhood Events. The event took place on Saturday 9 June at Goldfinch Road (SE28) in West Thamesmead.
This family friendly event invited residents’ to come and meet with Hexagon, have fun and find out about opportunities in the Greenwich area. There were opportunities for local residents to talk to staff from a range of Hexagon services.
The event enabled Hexagon to talk to residents and hear first-hand about any issues that they had. The main issues centred around:
- Garden fencing
- Pest control, particularly mice eradication
- Appointments and the standard of work carried out by some contractors
- Delays with repairs
- Cyclical repairs and clarity on when such repairs are due
The Chair of the Residents’ Forum was also present to share with residents how the Forum operates and the input it makes to Hexagon. Community Investment took the opportunity to talk to residents about its new Digital Champion initiative (find out more in the summer edition of Home News).
Residents also heard from the Workers’ Education Association about how they can get involved with adult learning and mentoring opportunities in Greenwich.
Creative juices flowed
Children and young people were entertained too! They made their own music by getting involved in DJ-ing workshops. Others had their faces beautifully painted. They also got involved with creating their own t-shirts. Games and football coaching helped to keep them active too. As the afternoon drew to a close, all residents were invited to complete an evaluation form and this feedback will help Hexagon to shape how we host future events.
Thank you to all residents that helped to make the afternoon a success.
Next stop for Hexagon is July 14th in Bexley. Look out for publicity to be released about this soon.
