Repair Fair 2018
On Saturday 24th Feb (one of the few Saturdays when Twickenham wont be full of lairy rugby fans) we’ll be opening our doors here at Thames Valley Towers so our residents can meet our repairs contractors.
We’ve got Axis, Just Ask, Cleanscapes and BSW as well members of the TVH repairs team as well as our T & E team who’ll be offering full training & employment support.
As well as helpdesks, workshops and presentations we’ve got amazing prizes (including 7 tablets, a handyman service, window cleaning, carpet cleaning and a garden makeover) plus goody bags and a fabby lunch.
Each year we aim to hold an Unconference* for involved residents.
We held one in January 2016 and in December 2014. We use the feedback from these to help improve our services.
Here’s a short video about how it went in 2014:
Rather than having pre-arranged speakers, attendees ask to have conversations around areas they want to discuss. The also choose to attend other people’s conversations that are of interest to them.
Instead it is led by the attendees who don’t just listen to other people talking but contribute to the discussion as well. This means the agenda is determined by the attendees.
Older residents trip
Each year we invite all our older residents to join us for a day trip. In past years we’ve had fish and chips in Brighton, a day at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu and tea on the pier in Worthing. You can email Josh Weir, Eleanor Morgan or call 020 8607 0763 if you’d like to find out more.
This is where we list details of any competitions that we are currently running for our residents. New competitions will be annouced on our Facebook page, with details and full T&C’s here.
