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.

Next eTRA meeting & the first bin with artwork is delivered

Above: delivered today, Thur 12th of March. We've had some problem with colour management and col profiles at the printer so it turned out with more green than it should have had.
That's the risk you take without proofing everything.
As it happens this is the only bin on the estate that will have this artwork.

Below is a close up of the central front section of the bin showing "Property of Hackney Homes"
As it is the first bin art actually delivered and seen full size I've decided to move the text to the center top for the rest. That goes for this design with leaves and the other two designs (see posts below).

Click on the pictures above to see them full size


The next TRA meeting is an "enhanced" one with housing officers attending.
It will be on Wed 29th of April at 7pm.

The next meeting after that is our AGM, on Wed 20th of May.

David White.
