Following a request from the local
community group Grangefield Committee,
a neighbourhood pride day recently took
place in Winterton.
The afternoon involved painting a number
of fences, a tombola, football and some
educational games. The community group
provided refreshments, and 10 of our staff
gave their help and support.
Around 25 people visited during the day to
get involved, chat to staff and find out
about upcoming events.
A couple of weeks later, the group also held a teddy
bear picnic with food, drinks and fun all on offer for the
community to enjoy. Ongo Bear went along and had a
great time too!

100 years of social housing
2019 marks 100 years since the Addison Act was passed,
which opened the door to council and social housing.
To celebrate the milestone, our Housing Officers Nicola
and Scott visited our 100-year-old homes to deliver flowers
and chat to tenants. There are 15 in total on Chapel Lane,
Keadby, along with Smith Street and Sheffield Street
Scott said: "Council houses and housing associations have
changed and developed so much since 1919, but the reason
we're here will always be to provide quality housing to those
who need it, and I'm very proud of that."
Margaret Drewery, 77, who is an Ongo tenant said: "I've
never lived anywhere else and I've seen huge changes over
"It's a lovely idea to celebrate with tenants."
