Touring the District

20 June 2018

We recently held our annual bus tour, giving everyone the opportunity to learn more about we do, meet our staff and tour key projects across the district.

Councillors, Board Members, tenants and partners were taken to several sites, including The Willows in Farndon, where an introduction to our Development Programme was given and surveyor Dennis Roxburgh showed everyone the current work in progress.

The development programme involves 335 new homes and is being delivered on behalf of Newark and Sherwood District Council.

Our approach to tenancy sustainment and enforcement was also explained by Julie Davidson, tenancy and estates manager, and Paula Joyce, senior housing officer, who walked everyone around Saint Marys Gardens in Hawtonville.

Our approach to fire safety management was then explained by Kevin Shutt, planned and cyclical maintenance manager, as people were shown around extra care facility Vale View.

The tour concluded with a networking lunch at Beaumont Close Community Centre.

Rebecca Rance, chief executive at Newark and Sherwood Homes, said: “It is a privilege to showcase the great work that has been done by Newark and Sherwood Homes over the last year and let people see and hear for themselves how the progress is making a difference to the local community. The feedback we have received from the bus tour is positive and we are pleased everyone found it so educational.”
