We welcomed members of the community along with other special guests to the launch of the second phase at Hillington Square, Valentine Place!

Valentine Place is the second phase of the Hillington Square regeneration project, which represents an investment of over £5 million by Freebridge Community Housing in the local community. The completion was marked by celebrations involving Hillington Square residents along with employees and partners of Freebridge.

Guests attending included Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, members of the Freebridge Tenant Panel and both new and old residents from the local area.


Delicious food was on offer from the Community Cafe on Hillington Square, and there were a host of craft activities for the children to enjoy. 

Tony Hall, Chief Executive of Freebridge Community Housing said: “We are very pleased to see that everyone has settled into their new home at Valentine Place and are quickly becoming a part of the wider community on Hillington Square.  It’s great to see that the work we have done so far is having such a positive impact.”


Valentine Place at Hillington Square has a range of studios, along with one, two and three bedroom homes available for tenants registered with Home Choice.  Work on phase three of the development will begin in the next few months.
