More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Bin artwork to go ahead

Above: another possible idea for the bin artwork - just a visual.
(see also "July 25th" post further down for more visuals)

I can announce that our application for funds
from the
Tenants Levy Special Projects Fund

has been successful.

We have the money for both the bin artwork and the
match funding (with the EIB half) for the Bike Shelter.

We have heard nothing about the EIB as yet though
so the bike shelter status is still not confirmed as a go-ahead.

I will be showing more designs for the bins here
so keep a look out and let me know your preferred designs.
As soon as they are approved I'll send the artwork off to the printers
who will apply the finished heat-stick-on artwork to the big estate bins.
