Get ready for 'The Big Get Together'

Derwent Living is celebrating its annual general meeting this year by giving its residents the chance to come along to find out more about its services and to talk its employees.

The Derby-based housing provider will be hosting the event called ‘The Big Get Together’ on Thursday 16 June at The Quad in Derby city centre. The event will run between 6.30pm and 8pm.

Customers will be able to meet the teams at Derwent Living which are responsible for a number of key service areas including repairs, landscaping, improvements and rent. They will also have the opportunity to meet the directors of the company and members of the board.

The event is open to people of all ages and it will be a fun and informal way to get together to find out more about services on offer. There will be refreshments available as well as the chance to win prizes including a full room or garden makeover.

There will also be activities to keep younger children entertained too, including a masterclass for any wannabe DJ’s, led by a professional coach.

Mitch Allseybrook, resident involvement manager at Derwent Living says: “At this year’s AGM we want to do something a little bit different. We want to make the event fairly light hearted, to encourage residents of all ages to come along and get involved. There will be the chance to win some great prizes, including a room or garden makeover – donated by our partners Lovell and Greenfingers.

“For anyone who can’t be there, we will be streaming a live internet broadcast so people can watch it in their own homes. There will be an ‘at home’ prize of £50 in shopping vouchers. People can log on to our website to find out more details – “

If you are a Derwent Living resident and are interested in coming along to the big get together then please text 88802, email before the 8 June.

Mitch adds: “Don’t worry if you don’t decide to come along after the 8 June though, people are more than welcome to turn up on the night.”
