Local housing charity The Fitzrovia Trust held a tea party at the Fitzrovia Children’s Playground in Whitfield Street this afternoon (Sunday 6 July). Children took part in games, face-painting and were entertained by a conjurer. The event was sponsored by the Fitzrovia Partnership.
The Fitzrovia Trust acquires mixed-use properties to provide high quality affordable housing and works closely with councils and housing associations. In 2005 the trust leased the Playground and Nursery from Camden Council when they were threatened with closure. The Fitzrovia Trust now manages the Playground and sublets the Nursery to the London Early Years Foundation.
