Waverley Housing hosts tenants’ open day

A fun-filled Open Day took place at Waverley Housing offices with all tenants and members of the public interested in the organisation invited.

Information stands, manned by Waverley’s own teams, offered advice on benefits; repairs; payments and housing matters.

A few partner organisations set up stall to offer their advice too, including Healthy Living Network; Burnfoot Community Hub; Home Basics and Scottish Fire & Rescue Service who also proved a great hit with the younger tenants when one of their big red fire engines parked up outside the front doors.

To celebrate micro-businesses in the Borders, the reception area was turned into a pop-up shop, with various tables showcasing delightful crafts and giftware all hand-made by talented Waverley tenants.

With free goody bag, free refreshments with delicious cakes from the Almond Tree Café, free face painting and colouring competition for younger visitors and a fun-filled prize bingo game for those not so young, everyone was catered for and much fun was had by all on the day.
