Jack Roach and Wendy Dunn are two of our ‘involved’ residents.
Jack is the area representative for residents in our 18 homes at Peacehaven, Ferryhill; they have both served on our resident focus groups and they are regularly invited to observe meetings of our Housing & Development sub committee.
They also represented DAMHA at the Queen’s Garden Party a few years ago and are regulars at our annual residents’ forum.
Oh, and we almost forgot to mention that Jack is also a member of our residents’ gardening club.
Becoming involved in our work/services in this way is not for everybody, but it’s something that Jack and Wendy enjoy.
They have lived at Peacehaven for almost 15 years and in that time, they have had UPVC windows fitted and, just recently, had a new boiler installed and a new fireplace.
They have also put their own stamp on their home by putting in a new bathroom and fitted wardrobes in their one-bedroom property.
Wendy, 71, and Jack, 76, say: “DAMHA have always been very responsive when we have needed work doing and everyone is friendly, so we couldn’t ask for any more.
“By getting involved, we have got to know the staff very well and it’s given us a chance to meet lots of new people, which is great.
“We really enjoy living here. It’s off the main road so it is quiet and when the sun comes out we get it at the front of the house, so we can sit outside and watch the world go by.”
