Our Roadshows get underway

Published 23 May 2014


Our Summer Roadshow 2014 hits the road this week, bringing advice and information to tenants and residents at fun galas, market days and community events across the district.

The theme for this year’s Road Show is tenant priorities – understanding what our tenants needs are and how they see the services shaping in years to come.

Employees will be asking tenants what their specific priorities are for the coming year and for the future – they will also be entered into a free prize draw.

Our Engagement Team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, so come along to have your say.

Sarah Chatham, WDH's Resident Involvement Manager, said: "It's important that we involve tenants and understand what their specific priorities are so that we can shape the way that we deliver our services to them."
