In the past the social activity programme at Bridge Court has been hugely popular and a proven success in encouraging tenants to get out and about and socialise with others in their community.
As a result, the development are looking for volunteers to help expand their social activities initiative so that staff and volunteers can run more social events, such as games nights and coffee mornings.
Determined to keep expanding the social scene at Bridge Court, Jacqueline Giulianotti, Scheme Manager, said: “Many of our social activities have been a knock-out success amongst tenants at Bridge Court.
“So much so, that many people in the development look forward to the chance to socialise and chat with their neighbours.
“This is why we are so keen to expand the tenants’ social activities, so that they can get out of their house and have a bit of fun, whilst building real and genuine friendships along the way.
“We are always looking for ways to enrich the lives of our tenants and the positive feedback we have received regarding various social events proves that social activities are a great way to get tenants out and about.”
Bridge Court are looking for volunteers who are available on a Tuesday morning and in the evenings to help out.
Jacqueline continued: “We are constantly striving to adapt, evolve and enhance the social activities that we can provide for our tenants because it is always a pleasure to see them enjoying themselves and having fun.
