Both Unity and Keepmoat have both been actively involved with the Holbeck Neighbourhood forum and with the local school. Back in June 2014 the children from Ingram Road Primary school were approached by Unity to come with a name for the new houses. Wayne Noteman Regeneration director from Unity said
'I thought it would be a fun task for the pupils to work on. Something that would involve them as part of the development and give them ownership within their community'.
The children researched their area and selected a number of different names. The names were then sent to Unity offices and the names were voted on. The winning name came from Oak Class (yr4/5) this was 'Harding Villas'.
At that point the foundations had only been laid but then in December 2014 the first show home was prepared and the school children were invited to see, along with other members of the community.
