‘Tis the season…

*** UPDATE *** Window Decorating Competition

The festive season has arrived! Here at Connect we will miss decorating the office this year so we thought why not spread some festive cheer and get you all involved?!

We are launching a ‘festive window display’ competition! We’ve included some downloadable pictures below that you could print off and colour in, or call us up to request some in the post. You don’t have to stick with the ones we’ve chosen, get creative! Once you’ve done this stick it in your window with any other festive decorations you have and send us a picture of the finished product. Our staff will be keeping an eye out on estates too so make sure your windows are merry and bright!

Send your pictures to us on social media (@connecthousing) or to communications@connecthousing.org.uk.

Any pictures sent in will be in with a chance of winning one of our prizes – we’ll be picking winners

throughout December!

As the holidays approach we are all looking to find that extra little bit of hope and cheer. Although things will be tough for many of us this year, at Connect we want you to know that we’re spreading the festive kindness as far as we can by supporting you – our tenants and service users – with any COVID safe neighbourhood plans this December. Throughout this year you have been fantastic at organising community actions and support to help each other, and we are sure that this will continue through the festive period. That’s where we can help…

We would like you to get in touch with us to tell us about the things that are planned for the holidays in your neighbourhood, whether it’s big or small, we want to hear about it! We will see if we can provide any support or resources to spread the kindness that little bit further. It could be that you’re checking in with neighbours who are isolated at this time of year or maybe it’s that you’re planning some Christmas fun for the kids – bearing in mind COVID restrictions of course. All of these acts of kindness are so important and we want to provide as much help as we are able to, so please, please get in touch.

Additionally, if you think that this time of year might be a bit of a struggle for you and/or your loved ones, please get in touch with us as we have many support channels and will be able to connect you with the appropriate one.

We also want to hear from you if you are a member of a local choir. Although choirs are unable to meet at the moment we think it would be fantastic to host a virtual Christmas concert or sing-along for all the Connect family. If your choir or singing group would be interested in taking part in this then please let us know.


We cannot wait to hear from you!
