Our last YourSpace! (annual fun day for residents), was better than ever! We welcomed over 300 residents of all ages at the new venue of St Charles College in Ladbroke Grove where we gathered their views on the priorities for the year ahead, promoted a number of services that we have on offer to help sustain tenancies and enjoyed some fun activities for all.

The day was a great way to meet Octavia staff, Mears representatives, the Citizen's Advice Bureau, and many other community organisations, neighbours and friends. The feature of the day was our brand new 'Did you know.. We do that too' campaign which highlights the range of 'personalised' services that we have available to tenants to help them sustain their tenancies.

There was also lots of fun activities, including face painting, nail art, family portraits, mural painting, Solidarity Sports smoothie making and sports activities and a special Silver Comedy show for older people. The day came to an end with a delicious Caribbean lunch and announcement of the prize draw winners. Prizes included a Samsung Galaxy tablet kindly donated by our contractors Willmott Dixon, a £80 Halfords Vouchers kindly donated by Village Heating and a £75 Amazon voucher kindly donated by Lewis Silkin. Thank you to all who participated and to all those who gave their feedback about the services they receive and their views about where we should focus our attentions in the year ahead.
