A makeover for St Pancras Way community hall

The newly refurbished St Pancras Way tenant and resident association (TRA) hall reopened for tenants and local residents this week.

The inside of the community hall has been completely re-decorated, including a new kitchen and office area. The outside of the building has been re-painted and has had a general spruce up.

Kentish Town District Management Committee funded the refurbishment which has marked the start of the estate’s Spring Clean. The Spring Clean project is a scheme that improves communal areas on estates around Camden.

Councillor Patricia Callaghan, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “Projects like this are really important to the local community. For the next phase of works, we are in the process of consulting the residents about the improvements they would like to see, which in turn will improve their quality of life

“The Spring Clean project has been enhancing homes since it was set up in 2013. Improvements have already been completed at 63 blocks, which total 1,700 homes.”

Derek Jarman, chair of the Kentish Town District Management Committee, officially opened the hall on Monday 27 July.
