Branksome Hall Garden Party
In early August Branksome Hall Drive opened its doors for their annual summer garden party.
The event was organised by scheme manager Loraine with an army of volunteers from the scheme.
The Mayor of Darlington Cllr Jan Cossins attended the party and was greeted by tenant Vera who has lived at Branksome Hall Drive for over 12 years and will be 102 years young in November.
August saw the first of our Darlington Housing Series podcasts. First up was Natalie from Housing Tenancy Management who explained our repairs and maintenance service and the responsibilities of Darlington Borough Council as a landlord.
The link to the podcast is below with upcoming podcasts available in the next few weeks.
August saw the latest edition of our Housing Connect magazine which went out to all tenants via post. The edition covered subjects such as the upcoming Tenant Satisfaction Measures, Our Tenants Panel, Good News Stories and much more.
The magazine is also available online via our Customer Engagement page. Please also look out for an audio version of the magazine.
August saw the final month of our Gardening Competition which was launched earlier this year. The competition was a celebration of tenants' gardens with prizes given for Best Individual Garden, Best Community Garden, Most Sustainable Garden, Best Young Gardener, and new for 2023 the Largest Sunflower award.
The announcement for both the August monthly prize and the Overall winners will be announced in September so look out for the big announcement in the coming weeks.
