On the bench!

On the bench!

Tenants at Eastbury and Longcroft celebrated in style after their Community Chest application was granted!

To bring the community together, tenants had the wonderful idea to create a social spot where they could meet up on nice evenings, to have a chat with a glass of wine or a cosy cup of tea. As this was an idea that could serve the community, our Independent Living team assisted them in completing a community chest application for funding which would pay for some benches that could sit in the Longcroft grounds and become the centre of their social spot!

The application was approved and the residents couldn’t wait to make use of the new benches! A group of 13 tenants attended a celebratory wine and cheese afternoon to get settled into their new relaxation spot and they couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.

The group absolutely love their new seats and we can’t wait to see more of their events and fellow residents making the most of these new additions to the community!

If you could use some help in funding an event, initiative or project that serves to improve your community or local environment, we might be able to provide you with the money to make it happen.
