Spring spruce up for Ebury estate

CityWest Homes staff volunteer to spruce up the estate

The Ebury estate has received a makeover thanks to volunteers from CityWest Homes, the Ebury Bridge community engagement team and repairs contractor Morgan Sindall.  

Volunteers donned their overalls and grabbed their paintbrushes for a day to spruce up communal areas of the estate in the south of Westminster.

Sheds and walls were prepped for repainting, benches re-boarded and the whole outside swept clean of debris and rubbish and the finishing touches are due to completed soon.

Charlotte, a resident of Hillersdon House on the estate, said: "This area of the estate had needed some attention for some time, so it was great to get some help to give it the care and attention it needed".

Charlotte is also a member of the Community Futures Group, a resident group that works with the regeneration Project Team to allow residents direct influence on the regeneration of the Ebury estate.

The day of volunteering was organised by CityWest Homes in partnership with the community engagement team and repairs contractor Morgan Sindall following a visit from CityWest Homes’ chief executive Jonathan Cowie.

He said: “It’s really important to me that our staff get out and about on our estates and that includes me, hearing feedback from residents and seeing how things can be improved first hand is key.

“This is why I make sure I am out and about across Westminster, on our estates, several times a month, to see how our services operate on the ground.”
