Living in Hackney

Haca's Eye is the term that the name derives from, meaning "raised ground in marshland." I know what you're thinking - Hackney? Marshland? Well back before we were growing beards, getting funny haircuts and living the jet-set lifestyle that we all do in 2017 (like, way before) Hackney was a rural area. It wasn't until the arrival of the railway line and the Iron Bridge that the area began being built up. Hackney Marshes act as a great reminder of the areas roots.

Roman Road At Christmas

When we opened our 2nd office in Bow, we made a conscious decision to do as much we could to support and get involved with the local community. We immediately joined the East End Trades Guild which supports independent local businesses and were delighted to take part and assist in the first East End Independents Day which took place on Saturday 3rd December. The Guild put on a guided tour of the area which included a stop off at our office. Children from Olga, our local Primary School, had provided us with drawings, depicting what Roman Road means to them, with the attendees of the tour voting for their top three. We donated book token prizes for the top three which we understand were presented at school assembly. Below is a picture of some of the staff and the top drawing voted for!
