Peabody invested in new play equipment and an outdoor gym on Peabody Hill. Across London this year, this was their biggest investment, and included a new playpark and sandpit, adventure play equipment and a treehouse for older children and an outdoor gym for residents of all ages.
Cllrs Anna and Max were invited to open the new facilities and joined in with a day of fun and games, including testing the new play parks, joining in with a sports day, free health checks, and meeting the gym instructor to learn about the new gym.
Peabody Hill is an isolated estate and one of the least affluent parts of the ward. Anna, Max and Fred have done a lot of work to engage and empower local residents – they helped to set up an Over-60s Club, Christmas daytrips for residents, litter picking and estate clean ups, and support the local youth club.
