Ashfield Homes family fun days bring communities together

BOSSES at Ashfield Homes have been holding a series of family fun days to entertain its tenants and residents and provide information about its services.

Four events throughout the district have been organised during the school summer holidays, with the last of these to be held on Saturday in Selston.

They not only include fun activities such as sports coaching, pet displays and bouncy castles, but also give people the chance to learn more about Ashfield Homes and the organised activities that are available to tenants and residents.

Kevin Hornsby, tenancy services manager, said that anti-social behaviour has recently been highlighted as one of the main concerns for tenants, so the fun day events give the company the chance to promote the positive action being taken when dealing with complaints from tenants and residents within the local area.

“These events are a fantastic opportunity to bring communities together around a common theme of fun and engagement,” he added.

“This provides tenants and residents of Ashfield with the chance to meet and engage with their service providers and learn more about the specific services on offer.”

Also in reaction to concerns raised by its tenants, Ashfield Homes has created the ‘Ashfield Standards’ pledge, which is its commitment to involve and empower tenants and young people, and to work with partner agencies to provide diversionary activities for young people that help reduce anti-social behaviour.

The Selston free family fun event is being held at Selston Parish Hall from 11am to 4pm on Saturday.

Other attractions on the day include circus skills, face painting and the chance to meet Ashfield Homes’ mascot, Ashley the Lion.
