Tenants at Vale View, our supported housing scheme, have once again been getting creative with old and unused buttons.
The buttons are being used to create a giant bauble wall display for the grand finale of a regular creative musical workshop which has been held every Sunday afternoon with local singer Susie Chambers. During the workshops tenants have enjoyed writing poems, singing songs and colouring pictures. The grand finale will take place on 23rd December.
Tenancy Assistant Vanessa Travers secured funding for the creative musical workshop through the Nottingham Community Housing Association’s Elaine Melbourne Memorial Fund.
Vanessa commented: “Tenants have thoroughly enjoyed the creativity and everyone is excited for the grand finale at Christmas. Last year tenants used old buttons to create a ‘button tree’ and this year everyone has been enjoying making a giant bauble.”
