Residents commerate World War One
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.
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.
