Residents, staff and dignitories enjoyed a cuppa and a pasty around the new communal picnic tables and benches at Hawkins Road, Newquay, last week.
Ocean with the help of Hawkins Road’s residents hosted an event to celebrate the installation of the new furniture in their communal area outside the block on Thursday 5th November. A number of residents and their children turned out to thank Ocean for the new improvements to their living area which is part of an ongoing programme of planned improvements to the block.
“The residents here are so pleased with our new benches and picnic tables and we are so grateful to Ocean for providing them. We will really enjoy using them”, beamed Nancy Moody.
“It’s been a lovely afternoon with the local residents and we have enjoyed using the new outdoor furniture whilst drinking tea and eating pasties together”, concluded David.
The residents in the block of flats owe these new welcome additions to Ocean’s ‘Treasure Chest’ fund.
“Ocean’s tenants can apply for funds through our Treasure Chest Scheme to help them host community events, street parties and various projects within their neighbourhood. Hawkins Road’s new furniture is a great example of how Ocean’s Treasure Chest is used by our residents to unite them with others in their community”, added David Renwick, Ocean’s Group Chief Executive
We hope the residents of Hawkins Road will enjoy many more such events, bringing together the community.
