Successful residents event!
We held our annual Resident’s Event on Thursday night at Ashpark Primary School and, with over 60 people in attendance, it was a great success.
The event included the launch of our new website, mobile app and new-style tenant handbook. There was a presentation on the proposed rent increase for 2019/20 as well as the Good Neighbour awards, and talks by our guest speakers about a few of the key things going on at Glen Oaks. The aim of this event was to keep our residents involved and informed about everything we’re doing and to give everyone a chance to have their say.
With the launch of our new website, mobile app, and tenant handbook, it is now easier than ever to access helpful information, report repairs, log a complaint, apply for a house, keep up to date with the latest Glen Oaks news, and much more. Everyone at the event received a copy of the handbook.
A comprehensive presentation was delivered which outlined the process for consulting on our rent increase and residents in attendance were able to give their input. Hearing our residents feedback on this is really important as it will be reviewed by our Board in January when they decide on the level of increase.
The Good Neighbour awards were also presented to our three deserving winners - there were a lot of nominations this year of a very high standard. We would like to extend a thank you to everyone who was nominated and everyone who made a nomination. Huge congratulations to our winners from Arden, Darnley, and Pollok!
We had some presentations about our excellent Handyperson Service, joining our Board, and the great opportunities for young people offered by our Workingrite project. On top of all of this, there was a buffet and refreshments, a wonderful prize draw, and entertainment for the children in attendance – it was a busy night but a lot of fun!
Thank you to everyone who made it along!
