Celebrating 100 years of housing

News Date:

Celebrating 2019, a 100 years of housing, NPH has created a competition that young people, schools and families can get involved in!

World War 1 created a huge demand for housing in the UK. The Housing Act developed and written by Dr Christopher Addison in 1919 made housing a national responsibility. It started a national house building programme of 213,000 Council homes of the time.

What will the home of tomorrow look like? Eco-sustainable, made from recycled material, equipped with smart fridges or perhaps able to move from one location to the next.

We want to see your drawings of what a home will look like in 100 years’ time.

It is fun and easy, something all the family can get involved in. Your drawings will be displayed at a celebration event, online on our website and through social media later in the year.

A prize awaits the best drawn idea or invention!

How to take part

Pick up your colouring pens, pencil and ruler and draw a home that you want to see in 100 years’ time. What does it look like? You decide.

Once you’ve created the drawing, you can send it to NPH by:

  • Email: comms@nph.org.uk
  • Post: Northampton Partnership Homes, The Guildhall, St Giles Square, Northampton, NN1 1DE.
  • Social media: Twitter @NPH_news.

If you’re a school in the local area and you are interested in taking part, please contact NPH’s Comms Team on 01604 838136 for further information.

The deadline for entries is the end of June 2019.
