make:good held a pop up event on Whittington Estate on Thursday 10th of March. They spoke a number of residents from the estate and surrounding area, and asked them ‘what do you love about where you live?’
They also talked to residents about any issues or ideas they have about making their community a better place to live. As the pop up took place from 3pm, they got the chance to speak to children coming home from school and found out about their priorities and hopes for the estate and Dartmouth Park. Some of the topics that came up were:
-More for teenagers to do and get involved in
-One of the younger residents suggested opening a sweet shop
-A lot of residents spoke of the importance of community and preserving that community by finding ways in which people can grow as a family but still afford to stay in the area.
make:good will be popping up at Whittington Estate again after Easter and they hope to speak to more of you. You may also contact them on 0203 735 76 29 or email Diana – firstname.lastname@example.org.
