Free open day for Hackney leaseholders and freeholders

HDS10252 - Lease & Freeholders event ELECTRONIC A5 flyer_v4 FRONT

Local leaseholders and freeholders will be able to learn more about the services on offer from the Council at a free open day tomorrow (Saturday 12 October). 

The event, which takes place from 11-4pm at Hackney Town Hall on Saturday 12 October, will provide residents with the opportunity to speak to service areas from across the Council and external leaseholder organisations. 

Residents will be able to get advice from the Housing Services team and other Council service areas, including estate recycling; the fostering team; electoral services; and our free employment support service, Hackney Works, on a range of topics. 

Attendees will also be able to speak to a range of external organisations, including the Leaseholder Advisory Service (LEASE), the Hackney Community Law Centre, and local charity Shoreditch Trust, who run community initiatives across the borough to improve people’s health, wellbeing and opportunities. 

An ‘Introduction to Building Maintenance’ workshop will be on offer in the afternoon, providing a summary of the services and teams included, as well as information on the types of repairs, which repairs require leaseholder consultation, contractors managed, and more. There will also be free activities, including mask decorating classes for children and massages, and free food and drink.
