East Kent Housing, Community Project”
In January 2016, Lily Matthews
put forward an application for a community gazebo with
seating and flower planters; for the residents of
Crookenden Place, Barham.
It was quite an ambitious
request, one that East Kent Housing had not had before
but Lily pushed on and in August 2016 it was given the
“go ahead”. A plan was drawn for a large
timber framed structure with paved base and path, wooden
flower planters and trellis work.
Mears Contractors and their
team got on with the job and this is the result – a
community gazebo, full of blooms with lovely planters
and a large seating area with benches and tables.
A friendly gathering place to
have a chat, a cup of tea with cake or a fish and chip
night (and we have also been known to have an occasional
“knees up” with a warm welcome for everyone in the
village to join in.
From the residents of Crookenden Place – a
big thank you to East Kent Housing and Mears
