The Castlefields Regeneration Partnership, joined by local residents and Derek Twigg MP, came together on Friday 25th May to recognise and celebrate the achievement of 10 years of regeneration on Castlefields.
The centrepiece of the event, held at The Brindley Arts Centre, was the screening of a short documentary film, directed by Elizabeth Brown, a Film and Television Production student at Edge Hill University. The film explores how Castlefields has been transformed over the last 10 years and includes interviews with different generations of Castlefields residents.
Over 50 people attended the event; speakers included the Leader of Halton Borough Council, Cllr Rob Polhill and Derek Twigg MP. Guests not only heard about the many milestones achieved since the physical regeneration work began back in 2002, but also about exciting plans for the future, which will see further investment and the Partnership continue to work with local residents to make Castlefields a great place to live.
The Cruden team has been a key part of regeneration delivery in the area over the last 10 years. As well embracing innovation through Modern Methods of Construction and engaging local people through employment and training schemes we have successfully delivered 559 new homes over 14 phases working with both Plus Dane Housing Group and Liverpool Housing Trust.
Cruden have been delighted to be a part of the transformation of the area and continue to support the many events and initiatives planned for Castlefields to mark the 10 year mile stone.
The film is available to be viewed on Halton Borough Council's You Tube Channel
