ROYSTON TEA DANCE ………………. What a success!
We held our first tea dance on Thursday 1st of June in the Blue Roof and what a day we had! We were delighted to be entertained by Christian, who was as fabulous as ever taking us all back over the years with his wide variety of music. We also had an amazing “ally cat” and a super “slosh” and such a great time was had by all. Delicious cakes and sandwiches were on display and we even had a wee game of bingo in between ……. fantastic!
Again we would like to say a very big thank you to Christian for coming along and being part of our fabulous community event and thank you to everyone who attended and supported us.
As a result of the very positive feed-back we received from everyone, we are looking to host another dance in September …………….. so watch this space.

Important Information…..Are you due to have a new kitchen, boiler or kitchen etc???? Please read on….this affects you…..
Our residents will be aware that we have a comprehensive planned maintenance programme in place whereby we regularly carry out improvement works to our properties. These works include replacement kitchens, bathrooms and boilers etc. As you will appreciate, these enhancements do not come cheap and we rely on income from rents and other tenancy related charges to pay for these improvement works. It is a very sad fact that a small proportion of tenants consistently fail to pay their rent, legal expenses and rechargeable repair accounts. This results in our staff consistently spending many hours pursuing these debts.
Following very serious consideration, the management committee has decided that where non-essential improvements are due to be carried out at a property, these will only be done where;
The tenant does not owe any more than £300 in tenancy related debt (this includes rent arrears, legal expenses and rechargeable repairs)
A repayment arrangement has been established and maintained continuously for a period of at least 6 months.
Should you have any questions or comments on any of the above please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss this matter further.
