Coffee mornings coming to a scheme near you!Date: 11/02/2022
In Autumn last year we hosted our first coffee morning at Oliver Lodge. The housing, property services and customer involvement teams joined residents for a coffee and a much needed catch up.
It was an easy way for you, our residents, to share your thoughts and let us know what was working and what needed adjusting. It was also a great opportunity for residents to meet their neighbours, their housing officer and the wider Staffs Housing teams too.
After the success of Oliver Lodge we’re pleased to announce that we’re going to be hosting coffee mornings throughout 2022, and we could be coming to your scheme soon!
Laura Dalton Housing Manager says, “We’re really pleased to be rolling out more of the coffee mornings after the success of the first one at Oliver Lodge. It was a great chance to put faces to names and listen to your feedback.
“We’re always looking for new ways for you to have your say because your opinions and views matter to us. Whatever your feedback you have the power to influence our services and help build your community.”
“Look out for an invitation soon and why not come along even if it’s just to say hello? There will be friendly faces and a hot drink with your name on!”
Oliver Lodge resident Deb attended the first coffee morning. She said: “It was lovely of Staffs Housing to host a coffee morning. We all got the chance to meet up, socialize and I got to meet staff I hadn’t seen to give them my feedback.”
“I struggled through lockdown and I haven’t been able to see my friends and family, and it was hard. As always, we’ve supported each other at Oliver Lodge throughout the pandemic. But it was just nice to see everyone together again.”
We’ll be sending invites to a coffee morning near you very soon. For the first phase of the project, we’ll be visiting:
West End Village – February 2022
Bishop Court – April 2022
Stoneyfields Court – June 2022
Paragon Court – August 2022
Bradeley Village – November 2022
Don’t worry if your scheme hasn’t been mentioned, we’ll be releasing more dates throughout the year and will keep you informed.
