We hope you all enjoyed the
Huge Community FUN DAY on Sept 5th!
We thought it went brilliantly.
Just enough visitors to finish off all the food – plus a few more.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the day.
The weather was just about perfect too.

Our primary objectives were to raise awareness of the Clapton Panel among Hackney Homes residents and to encourage estates without TRAs to form one, or a suitable resident to think about becoming a “Key resident” and so have direct access to the EIB (Environmental Improvement Budget) and 184 (Resident diirected communal repairs & alteration) as well as being eligible to have representation with voting rights on the Clapton Panel.
Our other objectives had residents general welfare and access to Hackney Homes services in mind – to show residents some of the information, help and services offered by a range of organizations available to them.
We hoped and aimed for between 300 and 500 visitors.
As it turned out, with staff and invited stands we did indeed have around 450 visitors over the 4 hours of the event.
We did raise awareness of both the panel and the services and help available to residents as well as generating interest in the TRA & resident involvement system – gratifyingly from several younger (under 30) residents.
There is still work to do in “follow up” but even without it I think it’s fair to say that overall the event was successful enough to hold it again next year, perhaps even slightly bigger (certainly better with the odd organizational lesson or two learnt).

Everyone enjoyed the NEMESIS dancers – at one point the appreciative crowd was whooping, screaming and whistling so loudly they drowned out the backing music!

Felix Joseph’s NEWHAM STEEL BAND
Above: Felix Joseph and the Newham Steel Band. About as good as it gets – really professional musicians. We rather “lucked out” there.
Highly recommended – email: email@example.com

The site plan
Here’s the first panorama. It’s a little deceptive at this scale. Even early on there were quite a few people which you can just about make out on the tree line, in front of the stage and all the way to the food stands on the far left behind the pop-up.
If you click on the picture it will come up in a separate tab or window – if you click on it again it should come up full size…
…about 10 inches high by about 26 inches wide.
Here’s some more of my quick digital snaps:

Above: “Goalden Events” table football tournament – excellent.
All 6 tables were occupied continuously. Half hourly tournaments with prizes.
