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.

Fruit trees donated to Millfields Park

On Sunday 20th Feb a group from the
"Beecholme & Casimir Community Growing Project"
met with members of the
"Millfields Users Group"
to transplant 2 fruit trees
a semi-dwarf almond and a plum
in North Millfields Park.

The work was done by volunteers from both groups
with help from the Tree Musketeers.

A further tree (cherry) will be transplanted this coming
Sunday 27th at 11am
weather permitting.

Christine Williamson (B&C TRA vice-chair) with help from with Tim Evans (MUG sec.) arranged the hand over and donated the trees which were moved to make way for a new greenhouse.

The presentation above has some 10 photos documenting the trees being lifted and  re-planted.
