LR, Jo Alden – Councillor Judy Brandis – Julie Ward – Ben Douglas – Michela Catena – Sheila Cotton

The launch event for The Oakfield Community Building took place on Friday 1st November and organisers invited local residents, Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ employees and local Councillor Judy Brandis to view the new facilities and to find out more about how the centre will be used.

The centre, which will be managed and run by Aktiva Nurseries, is home to a nursery and pre-school as well as a large community room which will be used by local groups and clubs and will be available to hire by the public for functions.

Local Councillor Judy Brandis cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the community centre, she said: “Having a brand new, purpose-built community centre on the development is absolutely wonderful. It’s really important for people of all ages to have a place where they can get together and socialise.”

Kingsbrook is the flagship development for Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames and has been incredibly popular. The first phase of the development has now been completed and work has begun on the second village, Canal Quarter, which will consist of approximately 1000 homes.

Jo Alden, Technical Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames said: “We are very proud the community we are building at Kingsbrook and the new Nursery and Community centre is the perfect addition to an already thriving development.

“Kingsbrook is attracting many families, so having great schooling options and a hub for community activity is really important. Aktiva are a great partner and have worked with us to ensure that the community area was accessible more than a year before it was scheduled.”

Barratt Homes currently has two bedroom apartments from £210,000 and David Wilson Homes has a range of three and four bedroom homes starting at £332,495.
