Due to the cold weather a few weeks ago, we had to fix the frozen condensate pipes of around 350 people by cutting them. We are aware that these residents now have cut pipes, and we will be arranging to fix them as soon as possible. If you had a condensate pipe cut, we will get in touch in April to arrange an appointment to fix it. Thank you for your patience.
We're looking to fund two residents who are interested in taking a Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Level two qualification in Housing Practice. The qualification is the equivalent of a GCSE or an NVQ Level 2, and will help you learn more about housing, community activism and the history of the housing sector.
One of the most common problems households can face in extremely cold conditions is water freezing in the condensate pipe (the waste pipe that takes the condensation from your boiler to your drain outside). Read the official British Gas advice on how to defrost your pipes.
One of our residents has secured an apprenticeship offered by ENGIE Places and Communities, Watford Community Housing’s improvement programme contractor, helping her find a new career after some time out of work.
