East Kilbride Housing Association unveils new logo

ekha1After a year of Scottish Elections, EU referendums and the like, the result of the most important ballot of 2016 was finally announced by East Kilbride Housing Association.

After an intensive social media campaign, on-line and text surveys and the traditional polling booth method, East Kilbride Housing Association tenants, members, Board and staff have chosen its new logo from a choice of four. The winner was announced at the Association’s Annual General Meeting, held at the Torrance Hotel in East Kilbride.

Director Andy Young said: “While I liked all four of the logos, I think our voters have chosen wisely. Our previous logo also contained a tree, so while this gives us some continuity, there is also a sense of growth.

“This new logo reflects the concepts of sustainability and environmental friendliness which are so important to us and we also think it highlights that we provide more than just housing services. Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to join in – we received around 150 votes, with the tree logo being the clear winner.”

The winner of the £50 shopping voucher was Mrs Elspeth Ross.

At the AGM Andy paid tribute to his predecessor the late Mairi Brown, who died earlier in the year, and invited members to come up with ideas for how the Association could honour Mairi’s legacy. He also outlined EKHA’s Operational Plan for the period to 2019, which was about to be published alongside its Charter Report to Tenants.

Finally, he hoped that the Association could begin to develop new properties once more, in order to help the Scottish Government to achieve its challenging target of 50,000 new affordable homes during the next five years.

The Association also gave out the prizes for our annual gardening competition (insert prize winners here) and members and guests enjoyed a free raffle, a buffet supper, and Jim MacGregor’s inimitable bingo calling.

A more comprehensive report on the AGM will be found in the Association’s upcoming autumn newsletter.
