2 HELLO FROM STEVE HEPWORTH

It's now been a couple of months since I took over from

Andy Orrey as Chief Executive and I can honestly say

that for me this is the best job in the world. Ongo is

such a great organisation filled with fantastic people

who together with our tenants do such positive things

for our communities. Being asked to lead it is a

real honour.

Andy Orrey is a hard act to follow and nothing

demonstrated this better than when I was able to open

The Arc in Westcliff recently. The new building really

reflects what Ongo is about, and Andy made sure that

we put the resources in place to make this happen.

There's a lot going on here at Ongo. As well as

the opening of The Arc, we're busy building and

developing new homes too. From 41 new homes in the

Westcliff area, to homes on the Albert Marson Court

site in Scunthorpe, as well as a brilliant new specialist

housing scheme for people living with Dementia. You

can find out more about these developments in our

special feature on page 13.

Speaking of new developments, our new homes on

Parkwood Avenue in Scunthorpe have won the Local

Authority (LABC) award for Best New Housing project,

and of course we have made the move into our

new HQ.

You can see photos of our new HQ on page 10, but

we'll also be holding a tenant open day so that you can

come and look around the new building. We're really

proud of it, and we hope you will be too. Our open day

is scheduled for 30 July at 11.30am - 1.30pm, and you

can register your attendance by emailing customer.

engagement@ongo.co.uk, or by calling on 01724

279900. Register your attendance by 23 July 2018.

One of my most important jobs as the new Chief Exec

is to think about our future, which involves producing

a new Corporate Plan to set out our direction for the

next few years. Your views are really important to

us, so if you'd like to have your say, please visit ongo.

co.uk/haveyoursay or log onto your My Home account.

If you don't have the internet, don't worry. You can

pick up a survey from our Customer Services Team or

get in touch and we will post one to you.

I hope you enjoy this edition of Key News. Please have

your say on the future of Ongo by contributing to our

new Corporate Plan and come see us at Ongo House

if you can. I hope to do some live Q&A sessions on our

Ongo Facebook page soon too so make sure you like us

on there.

Best wishes, Steve
