We frequently ask tenants for suggestions for new ideas on how they would like to engage with FCHA staff, tenants and the wider community. One of those ideas was a Brecon Canal Boat Trip and so we got planning on the next unique tenant day out!
In June, Nigel and Dave from the housing team as well as Donna, Director of Corporate Services & Housing accompanied 20 tenants and support staff on a 2 hour cruise down the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. Afternoon tea and cakes were provided on the boat and tenants got to enjoy a guided historical tour along the canal in the sunshine whilst enjoying the ducks, herons and swans that make the canal their home along the way.
Events like this are unique and always a blast to hold for tenants. It's something that, if it weren't for our Tenant Talks groups where tenants are provided a platform to raise concerns or requests to us directly, would not be brought to our attention.
We would like to thank all tenants and their support staff for joining us on the first of what we are sure will be many new ways to engage in the future. Keep an eye out on socials, the newsletter and letters from us through your door for all of the tenant events in your local area that you can attend!
If you are a tenant and have a unique tenant event suggestion that you would like to attend, let us know. Email email@example.com
