Residents at Prince Charles House, along with others who make up the group Active+, have been given the opportunity to get involved with something new.
Mosaic making sessions, hosted by Ocean and Cornwall College, took place over the course of three weeks and gave the group insight into designing and creating their very own bright and colourful mosaics.
“Although at first it seemed fiddly it didn’t take long to get the hang of it!” explains Christine. “The group really engaged with the activity and are looking forward to trying a different activity offered by the college and Ocean”.
Being part of a community group, tenant panel or local activity can be really rewarding – especially if you find your circumstances leaving you feeling isolated and out of touch or you can’t afford some of the expensive hobbies on offer.
Ocean networks with other Community led groups and organisations who run a huge array of activities across Cornwall. We share their posts on our Facebook pages or via Twitter.
Our Tenant and Resident Panel have experienced a few changes over the years. New faces have come, old faces have gone and with two of the longest standing members stepping down, the panel are always looking for and welcoming other residents to join and get involved.
“We’ve really enjoyed our time on the panel and the contributions we’ve made to the work of Ocean,” say Roy and Beryl, St Blazey.
“Having been involved in the Tenant and Resident Panel for 16 years, they’ll really be missed,” responds Jan, Chair of the Tenant and Resident Panel. “The panel provides a positive link between Ocean and its residents and we would love to see more residents getting involved and representing their very own areas and the residents that live there,” continues Jan.
If you feel you can make a difference to the way we do things here at Ocean – things that affect you and your community as a resident – why not join one of our Tenant Panels to make sure you ‘have your say’.
