I've had a really nice time at the event, there's
always something going on here to get involved in.
The atmosphere is definitely the best thing about living at
Lincoln Court, it's great.
Helen Wright, Support Services Manager at Ongo, said:
2017 is a milestone year for us here at Ongo. It's 10
years since we became a housing association, so it's
been great to be able to celebrate this big milestone year
for Lincoln Court too. We love organising events like these,
seeing everyone getting together to have a good time.
We're committed to reducing social isolation for our older
tenants, and putting on get togethers like this is a great way
to do that.
