Children from the Woodgrange Drive Estate Get Busy Painting Old Tyres and Transforming Them into Planters
The 8 – 12 year olds who attend the youth club run by Triple T in Estuary Housing Association’s Family Centre wanted to do something garden related. Estuary Housing have been experiencing a problem of people dumping tyres on the estate so Clint Ford and Caroline Creasey who spend their time keeping the estate gardens in top condition suggested painting the tyres.
The children loved the challenge, they got to choose their own designs and chose plants grown in Estuary’s community garden. Everyone is delighted with the finished designs which look fantastic and brighten up the estate.
What is STAR?
STAR is perception survey aimed at measuring customers’ views, impressions and opinions about their landlord and the services it delivers
This information will help us identify any areas for improvement. It will also help us to consider responses from different resident groups and geographical areas to ensure that we are delivering our services fairly to all.
Why are we carrying out the survey?
The survey is a requirement for social landlords. The core questions have been designed by Housemark and the responses will be submitted to them to enable us to benchmark our performance against other social landlords.
Every completed and returned survey will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win a share of £250 of Love2Shop vouchers!
