WE ARE pleased to announce that we have reached the Central Final of a prestigious awards ceremony in two different categories.
We are on a shortlist of six to win the Tenant Participation Advisory Service’s (TPAS’s) Excellence in Annual Reports, and Excellence in Tenant-Led Scrutiny, area awards.
Our 2013 Annual Report was produced following close consultation with tenants.
Jessica Collinson, Boston Mayflower’s Scrutiny Officer, said: “The work we have been doing with our Scrutiny Panel, which consists solely of our tenants, is up there with other work leading the way in the region.
“Hopefully we can win an award in recognition of the hard work our tenants put in to help Boston Mayflower provide better services.”
The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, 7th March, at St Johns Hotel in Solihull, Birmingham.
The TPAS awards aim to recognise excellent examples of landlords and tenants working together, as well as ideas that show what can be achieved when tenants are heavily involved.
If successful in one of the categories at the Central Final we will go through to the TPAS national final.
For more information about joining our Scrutiny Panel call Jessica on 0300 365 5000.
OUR new Affordable Warmth Officer Elizabeth Lamming is aiming to help you get the best energy deals and advice.
Her role, which started in December 2013, will initially run for one year. It is being funded by Boston Mayflower and its contractors Kier, Barthorpe and Aaron Services.
Elizabeth said: ““I am here to help all of our tenants and have already been in touch with hundreds of households likely to be affected by fuel poverty. Of those homes helped so far I have been able to save an average of £102 for them per year.
“It is really important that anyone wanting advice or guidance around switching suppliers, or on energy saving tips, gets in contact with me.
“I can offer independent advice tailored to particular needs. I can also go out and visit people in their own homes to guide and assist them from there.
“I'm very knowledgeable about heating systems in Mayflower properties too, so can help tenants get the most efficient and cost effective performance from their heating.
“The message is simple – if you are a Mayflower tenant I can come see you and save you money.”
Elizabeth is running some drop-in sessions until March 19th. These take place every Wednesday at Chantry House, run from 10am to 2pm, and all Boston Mayflower tenants are welcome to attend.
