The Hillington Square Summer Fete made a popular return on Saturday 15 July.

Despite the rain, the fete – now in its fourth year, played host to food and fun for all the family, with music and games on offer throughout the afternoon.

Among the many exciting activities that were on offer were; a bouncy castle, face painting and the chance to train your eye to the heavens with an astronomy telescope.

Undeterred by the weather, the Mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Councillor Carol Bower, came along to support the fete and take part in some of the activities.

Freebridge Director of Housing, Robert Clarke, said: “The Hillington Square Fete is one of the highlights of the summer for Freebridge, and although the weather wasn’t at its best, it was great to see so many people getting involved in the fun, it shows the fantastic community spirit that we have here in King’s Lynn and west Norfolk.”

Changes to Hillington Square Phasing

Having now completed well over half the work on the Hillington Square regeneration project plan, Freebridge Community Housing have announced changes to the timings of the works remaining for those phases not yet started.

Phase 5 was originally planned to include work to Ladysmith House, Farrow House and Vicarage House, however after looking into the best way to complete the remaining work to the highest standard, Freebridge now intend to complete the work on Chestnut House and Aitken House next.

This means that those in Chestnut House and Aitken House will be moving out of their homes later this year, and returning in 2018, with those in Ladysmith House, Farrow House and Vicarage House moving out in late 2018 and returning in 2019. The final phase will see those in Norris House move out in 2019.

HSQ Re-Phasing Comms Marked

Tony Hall, Chief Executive of Freebridge Community Housing said: “The project to regenerate the Hillington Square estate is a large and complex one. With that being the case we have always tried to make sure that we have taken on the lessons learnt from each previous phase completed. As a result of this we now feel that the best way to complete the remaining work, ensuring we maintain the highest standards as we go, is to complete the refurbishment of Chestnut House and Aitken House next.”
