Children living at our Shipfield scheme in Norwich were in for a treat when we held an open day at the community centre this week. The fun started with an Easter egg hunt, followed by some creative birdbox painting and a planting out session.
The birdboxes had been made from recycled carpentry offcuts by our Estate Services team. The team also helped the children plant out some colourful spring flowers to brighten up the scheme.
The open day was a chance for Shipfield tenants to talk to members of our Housing and Repairs teams about issues at the scheme. Our Tenancy Support team was on hand to help with money or employment issues.
Tenants were also able to take advantage of a 48-hour rubbish ‘amnesty’. Our Estate Services team allocated a designated area for large household items, and recycled the waste free of charge for tenants.
