Summer Play Pop-up | 12.08.16

On a sunny Friday afternoon some Westbury Estate residents of all ages joined us by the fountain to talk about play spaces, outdoor space and how they choose to play on the estate. Besides the football, obstacle course and fruit kebabs, we ran two main activities to hear what people thought about play:

Types of Play:

We presented four types of play to everyone and this sparked some conversations about what people liked and disliked:

What the Adults said:

We also spoke to parents and the adults of the estate and found out that having a visual connection to the play spaces was very important as well as having safe and protected play areas. Some adults also like to use the squares and mounds to sit on, socialise and listen to music.

If you missed our first play pop-up, don’t worry as there will be more opportunities to talk about play and outdoor activity in the coming months.

We hope that all Westbury Residents had a good Summer break. There will be lots going on over the next few months and NewmanFrancis will be working to make sure that residents have the support and advice they need.

Over the next few weeks the NewmanFrancis IA Service will be organising workshops with Westbury Tenants and Leaseholders to explain the new tenancy agreements and the new leases. There will be an additional workshop for leaseholders where expert, specialist advice about the valuations process will be provided. The independent advice service will continue its programme of home visits and support for vulnerable residents and will attend the monthly REP meetings.

NewmanFrancis will be using the new regeneration office at 7 Fovant Court once the space is up and running.
