H

ere's a round-up of all the wonderful things you and

our staff have been doing for the community.

Royal street parties

To celebrate the recent Royal wedding, some of you have

been holding street parties for your local communities.

Mrs Chambers, together with other residents, held an

afternoon tea themed celebration in Broughton, with a

special showing of the wedding.

"It was a lovely atmosphere and the event attracted around

30 residents, who all brought some food along. Some

residents wouldn't usually be able to leave the house to

enjoy such things, so it really was a special day. In fact it

went so well that we're in the planning stages of holding a

BBQ!" said Mrs Chambers.

Another Royal street party was held over at the Ongo

Viking Centre, Barton, which was hosted by members of

Ongo staff and volunteers.

The event attracted over

200 residents, and

events included a BBQ,

face painting, and a

Royal themed fancy

dress competition.

Fran Rhodes, Estate

Coordinator, said: "We're really

pleased with how the event

went and it was greatto see so

many families enjoying

the celebrations."

The Bike Project

Run by John Cavill, a qualified bike technician and member

of Ongo staff, the Bike Project sees volunteers learning the

skills required to be able to fix and clean damaged bikes

which have been donated. Once the bikes are road worthy,

they are given to clients of our Employment Support Team

that need transport to get to work.

The project is located in Buildbase, Scunthorpe with the

volunteers working in a container donated by Container

King. The team are always on the lookout for bike donations.

If you have any to donate, please get in touch with the team

by calling 01724 844848.
