Anyone interested in the history of Notting Hill and its residents should take a look at this fascinating video on the formation of Notting Hill Housing. This housing association was formed in the early 1960s as a result of the appalling living conditions that some residents faced – alongside other social issues that immigrants were forced for endure. The video shows a different side to Notting Hill that some of you may not be aware of, especially in contrast to what much of the area is like today.
Marking 50 years since the association’s formation, the video features interviews with those linked to Notting Hill Housing including Ann Kenrick, daughter of the founder, Reverend Bruce Kenrick, and the Trust’s first Chief Executive, John Coward OBE. It is highly recommended viewing – take a look below:
