UPDATE: People’s Regeneration Show Home launch delayed (like every other regen project, ever)

…Apparently 72-hours was a bit ambitious to redo an entire house… so we’ll be working through to Wednesday to highlight the possibility that still exists in each of the homes on our estate.

We hoped we could undo all the reckless damage inflicted on 153 Sweets Way in just 3 days, but Annington’s hired vandals really did a job on the place! A couple more days should give us sufficient time to get 153 Sweets Way ready for a family to live in. And we’ll still have done so for just a few hundred quid, so running late doesn’t mean the price tag is shooting up, like it does with most regeneration projects.

If you want to get involved or come document the process, come on down and join us today or tomorrow, or for the new launch day on Wednesday, between 11am and 5pm.

The house next door is now also open and has been left untouched, as a living record of what Annington does to these buildings to keep people from living in them, which this project is showing an alternative to.

Since we know not everyone is keen to get involved in DIY, we’re also keen for people to come help with feeding those of us doing the DIY work, and tidying up at our community house, as dozens of people come and go all day.

There’s always something you can do to get involved if you’re keen, so come down!

Here’s some pics of the process so far:
