Residents at Harvard Gardens joined community leaders and some well-known names to celebrate the completion of the new homes on Friday 17th March.

Former boxing champion, Lloyd Honeyghan, was among guests who met with residents at the development to celebrate the completion of the new homes. As a one-time resident of Southwark, he was on hand to help perform the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Honeyghan grew up in the borough and was honoured to have a building at the development named after him.  Lloyd commented: “I feel so privileged. As a teenager, I worked on East Street market to make money to pay for my boxing equipment. This area means so much to me.”

As well as the twice-reigning world welterweight champion, a number of other people were honoured during the event including war heroes, community workers, a policeman turned author, and infamous racing tipster, Prince Monolulu.

Other guests at the event included the Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Kath Whittam, Cllr Mark Williams, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and New Homes at Southwark Council, and Cllr Fiona Colley, Cabinet Member for Finance, Modernisation and Performance at Southwark Council.

Harvard Gardens offers 147 new homes, with the launch of these modern apartments and duplexes marking the latest phase of the redevelopment of the Aylesbury Estate, part of Southwark Council’s regeneration of the area.
