Residents came together to celebrate the opening of the new Eastend Homes Garden in Bow which has been named after a long-serving volunteer.
The garden, in Grafton House, Wellington Way, was officially opened on February 5, to coincide with the 84th birthday of long-term resident, Bernard Cameron.
Eastend Homes named the new garden after Bernard to thank him for all his hours of hard work over the last forty years.
Bernard said: “I’m surprised. I never thought that anyone had recognised what I had done.
“Its nice to find that people had listened to him over the years and its nice to see so many old faces come to celebrate.
Bernard has been volunteering with Eastend Homes since the first ever block opened in 1969.
He has been involved in a diverse range of activities within the community, frequently taking on a leadership role and acting as a prominent figurehead in support of community projects.
Bernard added: “Anyone would have done what I had done if they had the time.”
