On Saturday 10 April 2014 Lakehouse’s delivery team in Bromley put on a mighty show for thousands of local residents in Forster Memorial Park as part of Phoenix Community Housing’s annual festival. It was a great opportunity for a family day of fun and a chance to celebrate the local community.

Company mascot Lenny Lakehouse entertained local people and presented medals to winners of the ‘Silly Olympics’ which included fun sporting activities such as dressing up in hilarious costumes and taking part in egg and spoon races. Participants represented countries across the world and their achievements were promoted with the help of some professional race commentators.

Lenny and the team enjoyed chatting to local people about the training and employment opportunities at Lakehouse and joined residents to celebrate the works completed to date. Hundreds of sweetie bags and goodies were shared with visitors keen to talk about local issues.

Raffle prizes were kindly donated by Lakehouse’s supply chain and included a Samsung Galaxy tab and case donated by Mico Build; 27” TV/DVD donated by Armour Contracts; and a Samsung Digital Camera donated by Greentherm Mechanical and Electrical.

Lakehouse employees Dan Wrigglesworth, site manager; Lynda Thomas, site supervisor; Lorraine Hall, lead resident liaison officer; Samantha Ifill, administrator; resident liaison officers Keisha Mitchell, Olga Tkacuka and Robin George; and volunteer Jay Smith enjoyed the banter with local residents.

Raffle prize winner Gemma Webb who has lived locally all her life and visited the Lakehouse stall with her daughter said: “This was a great surprise. I really wanted a TV and I am really happy to have won.”

Phoenix Chief Executive, Jim Ripley said: “The Phoenix Festival is one of our most loved annual events and it’s great to return to Forster Park for the seventh year running.

“The festival is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that’s brilliant in south Lewisham – a wonderful sense of community and special people that work hard all year round to make our area a better place to live, work and play.

“We’re overwhelmed by the number of people who join us in Forster Park each year – it proves the strong sense of community in south Lewisham and commitment to improving the local area.”
