More than 30 tenants from Ripley, Heanor, Alfreton and Belper enjoyed a family-fun day last week while they gave feedback about their landlord, homes and services.

Futures Homescape’s free Tenants’ Conference saw children enjoy art and crafts, shelter building and a nature trail at Conkers, near Swadlincote, while their parents gave feedback about the housing association. Sarah Whattam, community development manager, said: “The aim of our tenants’ conference is to give people who might not otherwise have the time the chance to tell us their views on what we do. By holding a family day in half-term we can get valued feedback, and give residents a free event in return.”
