On Wednesday 22 August EastendHomes hosted a Residents Open Day to bring everyone together and to let residents know more about the wide range of services available to them.
Held on the Schooner Estate on the Isle of Dogs the theme of this community event was fun, with activities and games for all ages and even a visit from Mickey Mouse. Entertainment included:
- OAP Afternoon Tea
- Giant Games for all
- Football Competition
- Prize Giveaways
A wide range of partners were on hand to share more about their work including:
- The London Fire Brigade
- Tower Hamlets Food Growing Network
- LinkAge Plus
- Morgan Sindall who promoted apprenticeship opportunities specifically for EastendHomes residents
The event also launched the Tower Hamlets Star in the Community Awards to EastendHomes residents. The award gives local people the opportunity to nominate neighbours who go the extra mile for their community. Full details are on EastendHomes and Tower Hamlets website.
As well as having lots of fun residents shared their ideas with EastendHomes staff on how to improve services for the future.
Paul Wilson, EastendHomes Community Manager said:
“Our Residents Open Day was a great day of sharing, sharing information, sharing ideas and bringing everyone together in the glorious sun. Many thanks to our corporate volunteers who shared their time to help make the organisation of this event a great success.”
