Every year they play host to a colourfully illuminated Christmas event for the local children and wider community. This year it was fantastically received and even boasted an appearance from Santa who elegantly handed out presents. These were kindly donated by local community member Melissa Frisby.
The festivities were well catered for including a pot of zingy hot chilli and Chloe Mann kindly made festive hot chocolates for all the fortunate guests.
Customer Sue Garbutt, who was active in organising and catered the pot of chilli for the event said: “this is who we are and what we are about. We look out for each other and enjoy getting together as a community to celebrate special occasions and make it magical, especially for the children.”
Community housing officer Sharon Malone added: ‘as a small community housing association we are always delighted to see residents coming together and creating for themselves the neighbourhoods they want to live in’
If you are interested in running some community activities in your local area, please contact your community housing officer who will always be interested in hearing about your ideas to create neighbourly places. The number to call is 0300 500 600.
