Venture Housing in Boaler Street, Kensington

I had a terrific meeting with Peter Rogers at Venture Housing.

I hadnt been since they moved into their new building on Boaler Street, it is a great big shiny edifice of an office with long-ranging views across the north of the city, lots of space, community space, room for public meetings, a wonderful resource. Their building it on a run down residential street in down-town Kensington demonstrates a real sign of commitment to the area and its people.

We talked about lots of things that I wont put in here because it wouldnt be appropriate but I came away certain that together Venture and Labour can start to make a real difference to people's lives.

We were speaking the same language; regeneration, social enterprise, affordable housing, partnership working

It put a big smile on my face for the rest of the day.

So much more on this in the future
