Five of our Inhouse Maintenance Service (IMS) team colleagues recently helped to repair items within our sheltered development in Crantock Street during a Repairs Hit Squad event.
We worked with members within the community on a range of DIY jobs, including fixing new locks, hanging doors and repairing walls.
A number of painting jobs were carried out to help improve the look of homes in the area and our colleagues focused on improvements in communal areas.
The day was a huge success, really increasing a feeling of community spirit and neighbourhood pride.
Our Community Connector, Mai Evans said: “With the support of our IMS team and other colleagues, we were able to get through a massive list of repairs and improvements in a really efficient way.
“It is important for us to ensure that our customers have homes that they love to live in and it was great for our customers to meet some of our IMS team.
“There was a real positive feel to the day and the customers picked up some useful skills along the way.
“There were also some lovely conversations with customers especially during the Design-A-Sign competition for the children living at Hawke Close.
“The feedback from the customers was really upbeat and it was a pleasure to be part of it.”
