Hackney Housing At Fifty
Did you know? It is 50 years since the creation of the London Borough of Hackney as we now know it. Previously, there were three boroughs: Hackney, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington. In 1965 these were amalgamated into one, taking the name Hackney.
Hackney Homes is celebrating this Golden Anniversary with a number of events and activities that residents can take part in. We are asking residents to submit personal photos that show their family on estates throughout the 50 years.
Residents can submit photos by email, or post, or in person at the details below. We will then select a photo by lottery to win £50 in shopping vouchers. The deadline to submit images is 31 August 2015.
A selection of images will be displayed at a number of community events that Hackney Homes will be holding over 2015, inviting residents to see their neighbours in their family lives over the decades and celebrate the changing face of Hackney.
Address: Hackney Homes, 1 – 4 Olympus Square, Nightingale Estate, London, E5 8PL
