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.

There'll be a tom-bola and apple bobbing as well as a magician or balloon manipulator. There's a barbecue and chicken or veg wraps. There'll be a cafe area as well.

On stage there's the Nemesis street dancers and the Irish dancers.
There'll be a stell band to boot.

There'll be free bulbs and possibly herbs for the window box supplied by Hackney Homes Estate environment as well as stands with give-aways fro everyone from Pinnacle to Crispin & Borst to safer neighbourhoods and a lot more...
