Peabody in the news

Along with many others, our residents commemorated the centenary of the World War One Armistice last weekend.

The Tenants Association at our Rosendale Road estate in Lambeth organised a tea dance on Saturday. There was also a remembrance ceremony on Sunday; Alison Muir, Peabody's Director of Resident Services, attended to lay a wreath at the memorial there.

Rosendale remembers

Rosendale memorial

The Rosendale memorial (pictured above) is the largest Peabody memorial. During WWI residents set up a "Tommy and Jack Fund" for gifts and supplies to the soldiers and, at the end of the war, the remaining money was used for this memorial.

A plaque was also unveiled at Rosendale in 2014 to commemorate three people killed in a bombing raid during World War Two. You can read more about Peabody memorials here.

  • There was a memorial eventĀ  in Thamesmead on Saturday. John Lewis, Peabody's Executive Director Thamesmead, attended a service at the Thamesmead clocktower alongside representatives of local councils. Learn more about Thamesmead and Peabody during World War One.
