Populo Coronation Party and Residents Market held on the Carpenters Estate

Posted 10 May 2023

Populo Living recently hosted a joyous neighbourhood party on Carpenters Estate to mark the coronation of HM King Charles III and HM Queen Camilla. This was one of the 119 neighbourhood and 7 street parties which took place across Newham to mark the historic occasion. Families, friends, and visitors came together to take part in food, festivities, and entertainment on offer in the sunshine.

The party also functioned as a launch for the "Carpenters Estate Market", which allowed local entrepreneurs and businesses to display their wares, from delicious foods to handmade crafts and fashion. This event provided an opportunity to explore the area's thriving commercial community as the estate continues to undergo regeneration delivering over 2,000 new homes – with 50% at affordable levels. 

Lerato Marema, Community Wealth Building Delivery Manager on the success of the event: ‘It was amazing to see residents, friends and visitors coming together on this once in a generation occasion. We were also delighted to doing a soft launch our Carpenters Estate Market to showcase a range of hyper-local entrepreneurs sharing their talents from food, crafts, and fashion. Populo are so excited to support local entrepreneurs to flourish as part of the wider regeneration plans across the Estate.'

We would like to thank everyone who attended and took part in this momentous occasion and look forward to seeing you again soon.
