Resourceful Residents

The Oldfield Estate on Regent’s Park Road, overlooking Primrose Hill park, is home to some of the most distinguished and beloved residents in our area.

The buildings where they live are set within attractive gardens and courtyards, which give great pleasure to occupants and passers-by. Much effort goes into maintaining the communal outside spaces, led by an enthusiastic and committed team who have tended the gardens for many years.

Vital to their efforts are the tools they require to carry out their work. In an unexplained event, these precious tools have recently gone missing, leaving the gardeners with immense difficulties in tending the grounds.

Ever resourceful, they have found a way to raise funding to replace the tools by running a pop-up stall selling books, DVDs and sheet music outside the entrance to the estate on Fitzroy Road every Saturday and Sunday, mid-morning to mid-afternoon (weather permitting). Amazing bargains can be had with prices ranging from 50p to £5 and all proceeds going towards the purchase of much-needed gardening equipment.

Donations of plants, quality books, DVDs and any other desirable items (non-electrical) can be left at the reception office of Jacqueline House, 52 Fitzroy Road between 9.30 am and 4 pm on weekdays, and will all help towards this initiative.

Get on down to Oldfield, bag a bargain and help green the neighbourhood!
