The Summer of 2019 is going to be an exciting one for Castlehaven! After nearly 20yrs of constant use our Community Centre is getting a well-earned facelift, and a problem area in our Community Park will be purposely landscaped for all to enjoy!
Work on our Community Park is due to start in June, with scheduled completion at the start of July. And our Community Centre will receive its facelift between mid-July and mid Sept!
We have fundraised over £25,000 to improve the problem area in our Community Park to make it more accessible, interactive and educational with an emphasis on community spirit. Helping the local environment is also very important to us, which is why the park will contain an organic food & plant growing area and community compost bins. Another motivating factor behind the park’s redevelopment is reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. We are opening the area up and adding in a new pathway, which we hope will increase footfall and reduce anti-social behaviour, an issue which has been blighting Camden for quite some time. We want residents to be proud of our Community Park, which is what it deserves as Camden Town’s largest green space.
July will be a very busy month as it’s also when the refurbishment of Castlehaven Community Centre begins. New additions to the building include a coffee kiosk, new kitchen classroom, a meeting room, new lift and a relocated entrance and new reception area. We are incredibly excited about the upcoming changes that will make Castlehaven an exciting community destination.
We will try to limit the disruption to our services from July to September, please check our website and social media sites for updates. The Horticulture Hub will be operating as normal, and we will relocate the majority of Ageactivity 60+ and family sessions that occur in the community centre to other accessible & local locations. We will have more information regarding our activities closer to the time.
