February’s TAGging In

Here’s what happened at the February 2021 TAG meeting.How often do we say “hello, Neighbour”?

Do you say "hello neighbour" enough?

Do you say “hello neighbour” enough?

Perhaps we could do it more.

Tenant Advisory Group member Errol Turei has pitched a plan to connect tenants and to make the most of our community lounges.

The “Hello, Neighbour” programme will see lounges used for everything from knitting and art classes, through to photography and karaoke.

It’ll be trialed at Biddick Courts and could provide a template for activities at other communities.

The programme will be led by a group elected from the complex.

Getting around

A university researcher wants to learn more about how ŌCHT tenants use public transport.

Dr Helen Fitt, from Lincoln University, told TAG she was keen to learn more about travel habits and convenience, to see how public transport might be improved.

TAG chair Irmgaard van Schouten said convenient transport links were vitally important and welcomed proactive work on the issue.
