Evtra is accompanying representatives from Places for People to review the estate. This is an opportunity to hear PfP’s plans and highlight any concerns about maintenance. There will be a discussion about PfP’s Asset Management Plan – which is the long term maintenance schedule which includes major projects like windows and roofing. To join this group, look down Rossendale, Bergholt or Barker to see a small group of people and just come along.
All Elm Village residents are invited to the AGM. This is your chance to raise issues you feel important to our community. On the agenda will be our latest updates from Places for People, what’s happening around Camley Street and the wider King’s Cross plan, we’ll have a representative from our Safer Neighbourhoods team, and much more.
So come and join your fellow neighbours
24th July – in the Constitution cellar bar – 7pm till 8pm
Thanks to everyone who attended bringing their cooked and baked goodies. A lovely time was had by all. Special thanks to all the volunteers who helped organise in advance and on the day. The weather was perfect and the conversation even better. There was plenty of savoury and sweet food for everyone – and even our friends from the Safer Neighbourhoods team stopped by. Here’s to another year in a great community!
Yes, back by popular demand, our very own Big Lunch. If you attended last year you’ll recall what a pleasant afternoon we had and the new neighbours and friends you met. Hold the date:
Sunday 17th June, 12 noon till 3:00pm

The rain eased off just in time for the Elm Village Season Celebrations just before the Christmas Holidays. A good time was had by all. Special thanks to all the organisers and performers including David & Harriet, Ed & Frances, Zoe, Jan, Pat, Peter, Nigel, Wendy and staff at the Constitution, Mike and his crew at Camden Garden Centre. Here’s a selection of photos sent in by residents.

This is followed by our ever-popular festive sing-song which takes place in the Constitution at 7:00pm.

The rain held off for just long enough and the Big Lunch went on, very successfully indeed – with lots of thanks due to David and Harriet Powell and all their helpers for their hard work. Loads of Elm Villagers turned out for a veritable feast and chit chat. We even had a visit from our Police Safer Neighbourhoods team (one of them had a particularly hearty appetite – no names mentioned). Let’s look forward to another such occasion.
