WDH has seven area Facebook groups that tenants and residents are welcome to join. The groups are managed and monitored by WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officers who work out in the local community with community groups, putting on events and activities for everyone to enjoy.
Recently, the group for Knottingley and Pontefract has reached a major milestone, with over 1,000 people joining as members with people keen to find out and get involved with community groups and activities.
Claire Secker, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer for Knottingley and Pontefract, said: “It is amazing to see over 1,000 people as members on the Knottingley and Pontefract page. I always mention the group to anyone I meet when I’m out at events, encouraging them to join. Recently, we have seen more and more people engaging with the posts and activities on the page such as local litter picks, which is really great to see as we move back into normality after a difficult 18 months.”
