  • Aberfeldy Stories 10 Year Celebration brings community together

Over 700 members of the Aberfeldy community came together to celebrate their community and 10 years of the Aberfeldy redevelopment with the launch of a new public exhibition at East India Green.

Also present were Lutfur Rahman, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Councillor Kabir Ahmed, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Inclusive Development and Housebuilding and Unmesh Desai, London Assembly Member, City and East Constituency, who joined in the festivities and presented printed portraits to the residents featured in the exhibition.

The new exhibition, Aberfeldy Stories was commissioned by EcoWorld London and Poplar HARCA to mark the 10-year milestone of the Aberfeldy redevelopment and will be on display to the public at East India Green in Poplar until 31 August 2022.

The exhibition features portraits of Aberfeldy residents, business owners and community leaders, all shot by local photographer JC Candanedo, alongside audio stories about how their lives have changed since the regeneration began and their hopes and dreams for the future, created in collaboration with local arts collective The People Speak. 

The event was truly a celebration of the Aberfeldy community, featuring local businesses including The Works Café and Do Little Events who provided complimentary food and drink throughout the afternoon. Poplar Works based designer, Ellen Rock, and London College of Fashion’s Making for Change Team ran their Aberfeldy Through Your Eyes activity which will culminate in a community gathered mural and print, alongside a Talkeoake session by arts collective The People Speak, lawn games and a pop-up photo booth.

Lutfur Rahman, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, said:

“We started this journey on the Aberfeldy a decade ago and it is brilliant to see everything that has taken shape over the past 10 years. It’s not only much-needed new homes, but also improvements to community spaces and facilities. Working with partners across the borough we are going to make Tower Hamlets a better place to live for everyone.”

Alaina Morshead, a resident of Aberfeldy who was featured in the exhibition, said:

I’ve been part of the regeneration from Day 1, and I was really honored to have been asked to be part of this exhibition. We have a really good community here - Aberfeldy has been our home for a long time and the partnership have really been trying to keep it that way but improve it for the future generations. It’s been really great and I’m so glad to be a part of it.”

Heng Leong Cheong, CEO of EcoWorld London, said:

“We are so proud of what has been achieved here in Aberfeldy. Over the years we have seen how Aberfeldy is a truly special place and having worked closely with our partners Poplar HARCA and the local community, we know that it is the people who make Aberfeldy what it is. To celebrate the community and their unique and remarkable stories is a fitting way to mark this major milestone, as we look forward to Aberfeldy’s next chapter and together, creating a place that everyone can be proud of.”

 Steve Stride, CEO of Poplar HARCA said:

“It has been a privilege for us to work with the Aberfeldy community over the last 10 years, so this new exhibition celebrating local people feels like the perfect way to celebrate this important milestone. Together, we will continue to truly transform Aberfeldy, making it a place where people feel proud and happy to raise their families.”

Aberfeldy Village in Tower Hamlets has been the centre of major regeneration over the past decade, led by EcoWorld London and Poplar HARCA.

The 20-year transformation of the former Aberfeldy estate into a vibrant neighbourhood is led by a partnership between developer EcoWorld London and housing association Poplar HARCA.  The latest phase will complete by the end of 2022 with new public art, GP surgery, community centre, green spaces and over 900 much-needed homes of all tenures.  An ambitious new masterplan for the next phase of the redevelopment with over 1,500 new homes, shops, workspaces and public realm centred around health and wellbeing was submitted for planning in late 2021.
