Staff from Derwent Living will be out and about visiting schemes across the midlands next week on a special roadshow to celebrate the organisation’s 50th anniversary year.
The team has hired a special camper van and will be on hand to give out information on how to get more involved, answer questions about Derwent Living’s customer portal and smartphone app as well as give customers a brief history of the organisation.
The van will be starting out on Monday at Derwent Living’s oldest scheme still in ownership at Alfreton before visiting Derby, Northampton and Leicester, ending up on Friday at Derwent Living’s latest development at Chewton Street, Eastwood. A full timetable for the roadshow is available below.

Mitch Allseybrook, resident involvement manager at Derwent Living said: “The roadshow aims to get us out and about visiting our schemes over the course of the week. We want to talk to customers and see how we can help them get more involved as well as talk about the organisation’s history.
“Our 60s themed camper van will also be giving away Derwent Living goodies and there are prizes to be won. With such nice weather, hopefully lots of residents will turn out to see us.”
Derwent Housing was formed against the backdrop of post-war optimism and change by local building society manager Francis Eric Naylor and Ilkeston solicitor Herbert Brewer in 1964.
Now based at Pride Park, the organisation employs more than 750 staff and owns or manages some 25,000 properties across the UK.
