Community celebrate new pitch and play equipment in Fulham

A family fun day packed with sports, games and helpful advice was held at Robert Owen House to celebrate their brand new football pitch and play equipment.

The free event, in Fulham, was attended by more than 90 people. It was organised by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Robert Owen House Tenants and Residents Association.

H&F Youth Mayor Aminata Koroma joined in the fun on Sunday 21 August.

“I could tell from the laughter and smiles that everyone was having a fantastic time,” said Aminata.

“This wasn’t just about the new pitch and equipment, it brought people together and gave them the chance to learn about some of the valuable support H&F Council offers.”

There were stalls offering a wide range of advice including health checks, tenancy support, and the chance to meet members of the local police team. Residents were invited to have their say on how council housing is run and the chance to join working groups on repairs and other issues. 

 Music was provided by a DJ, who is also a resident of Robert Owen House and the afternoon was packed with entertaining games, including football, hockey basketball and giant versions of Jenga and Connect Four.

It was the first of a series of events called Community Connects, which will be held at H&F’s council estates in the coming months.
