failing heating system
by Rob Smith
Contacted by Jean Wood, chair of All Saints
Tenants and Residents Association (ASTRA), I went to speak to Adrian
Ford, concerning the distress caused to local tenants due to a persistent
failure in the district’s heating system.
Armed with a strong letter
previously sent to Mr Ford from the chair of ASTRA, I enquired
what the council housing department’s position was on this
Adrian explained that they were aware of this
problem and had sent out letters to all tenants whose lives have
been affected. This went out on 6th May, apologising for any inconvenience
caused and letting tenants know that the heating systems have now
been repaired, adding that any claims for inconvenience will be
investigated and those affected informed of that decision within
the following month.
If you have a problem with services, get
in touch on 242 0564 and we will highlight your concerns.
Community Celebration Day
To launch the final opening of Carwood’s newly revamped centre,
ASTRA in conjunction with Ellesmere Youth Project (EYP) will hold
a community celebration day on 14th June. Lorraine Blake of EYP
explained, “the day should be a lively event with music, plenty
of food, games and fun for all.”
