Brompton and Hans Town Ward Councilors
In Brompton and Hans Town, City Living Local Life supported 5 local projects each being unique and reflecting the variety of neighbourhoods that make up the ward. Early in the year Councillors approved support for The Kings Road Flower Power project which saw hanging baskets decorate the King’s Road from the Worlds End to Sloane Square and a specially designed map helped residents and visitors find out where special displays and exhibitions were stationed for the event. Marlborough Primary School received funding for its ‘Makerspace’ project – a lab where participants can combine Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths themes with art techniques. The space was opened up to the local community on a regular basis. A proposal from Open Age was approved by Councillors to provide extra provision in the ward for their Link Up programme which provides a 1-1 service for the most isolated elderly residents to introduce them to activity. Finally, Wiltshire Close Resident’s Association were in receipt of funding towards a new community noticeboard. The Association has partnered with the Community Champions programme to deliver health initiatives in the ward and this was a new way of marketing the new opportunities.
