Bathroom Replacement Peterloo Court, Irwell Valley Homes

We have completed our Irwell Valley Homes Bathroom Replacement Scheme at Peterloo Court, Salford, and the team has done a great job and it seems that the residents think so too! Earlier this week our site team were presented with a lovely card from the residents to thank them for the work they have done in their homes. The residents of Peterloo Court have very patient during the scheme– including neighbours whose properties we did not work in. The team wanted to give something back to the residents, our Resident Liaison Officer, Michelle, has given the residents of Peterloo Court trays of plants, that she has grown herself in her new greenhouse at home. The plants have been laid within the communal garden for all residents to enjoy.

“Connolly has been delivering bathroom replacement works at Peterloo Court as part of this year’s programme. Michelle Ridings, Tenant Liaison Officer, has built some really good relationships with the residents at this scheme and was impressed at how well tended the communal gardens were. Being a very keen gardener herself and having discovered the joy of growing her own plants, Michelle is acutely aware how this activity is known for being good for a person’s physical, mental, and social wellbeing. Along with a number of Peterloo residents and Connolly’s Site Manager, Paul Metcalfe, the team have spent today planting, which has given an instant impact and added value to what was already an impressive communal space. I would also like to add a huge thank you from me to Michelle for organising this event, creating a positive change, and providing some real social value which has had a positive and tangible impact on the residents at this scheme, and I hope that this will continue and mature into something even more spectacular!” Chris Rawcliffe, Irwell Valley Homes

Michelle added that “The communal gardens there are shared by all the residents, and it is beautiful, so I thought this was a fitting way to thank them for their patience whilst we’ve been working there. Someone has been there to open the gates for us every morning to park vehicles inside the courtyard and they have been brilliant. The residents who haven’t had any work done have also been helpful, so this was our way of giving something back. It has been an absolute pleasure to work here”.

What a lovely gesture, well done!
