Name for new Vauxhall flats
An application has been received to apply two of the following names to the new development of 67 flats being built on land currently known as 1 Glyn Street, London, SE11:
Muscovy House Lammie House Topaz House Dexter House
The names have been proposed by the developer following a workshop held at the neighbouring Vauxhall City Farm. The workshop involved local children aged between 8 and 16 and alongside selecting possible names for the development, they also took part in a Health & Safety session entitled ‘Never Play on a Building Site’. The initial list of 41 names was narrowed down through a series of votes by the children involved:
Muscovy House – Muscovy is a breed of duck raised on Vauxhall City Farm.
Lammie House – Lammie is the name of a well-known sheep at Vauxhall City Farm.
Topaz House – Topaz was a name the children involved in the workshop liked, though it has no direct connection with the farm.
Dexter House – Dexter is a breed of cow on Vauxhall City Farm which the local children involved with the farm has helped to rear.
