A focus on values brings the community in Burton Manor together
OVER 100 customers from Burton Manor basked in the sunshine at a special event to help make their neighbourhood a better place to live.
Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) and its partners ran a Respect Action Day in Merry Road on Thursday, April 8, to focus on the community and give customers the chance to speak to service providers directly.
Representatives from Staffordshire Police, The Right Stuff Boxing Club, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Trading Standards, and SARH were on hand to give people support and offer practical advice. A little pick helped ensure that the area had a great tidy start to the event.
Anna McLauchlan, SARH Neighbourhoods Project Officer, said: “We were blessed with a glorious day to hold the event. It was great to see so many of our customers of all ages coming along to get involved in the efforts to improve where they live and to talk to us about any issues within the community.
“We spoke to a lot of customers at the event and the feedback we received will be invaluable in helping us highlight any issues that need to be tackled in the local community.”
Youngsters also enjoyed free activities including a climbing wall, circus skills workshops, face painting and a bouncy castle.
Further Respect Action Days are also being planned for later this year at Doxey, and Barlaston. For more information please contact Anna McLauchlan on 0800 111 4554.
