Partners, You can now email the Chair of the Residents Forum
It's all go since I became Chair of the Residents forum. Today was a bit of glamour. Partners are now promoting their image and as Chair that means me as well. Had to pen a message to be included in the next Gazette. There is always a cut off deadline in all publications so as usual was done in rush. The next problem was photos of me.
Doesn't look good to have the same tired old photo used over and over again. They need some for the media and their website as well. I'm good at taking photos of others but I don't have any suitable current ones.
With a variety of outfits ready, Tom from HQ turned up this afternoon with his camera. Luck was in - the rain stopped just as he arrived. What a laugh - kept changing my clothes as he took photos all over my flat and around the property. In keeping with Islington recycling drive had some shots taken around and looking into the new Green 250 litre wheelie bin - will be interesting to see how they turn out. Least Tuesday is our collection day so it was easy to move all the empty bins and containers around.
More photos taken in the garden - I'm always chuffed after all my effort when officialdom say something nice about the garden. Partners have a planned series of themes for each Gazette - one in the pipeline is on the subject of maintaining gardens and the cleanliness of property frontages. After all the refurbishment works the whole property looks great. Office bound, it's probably the first time Tom has actually seen one of the properties made-over- he was impressed. An example of what can be done with a little care this property will most likely be photographed a lot during the next couple of years.
Partners are keeping up with modern technology - there will be no more traipsing back and forth, to sign letters - what a relief. They have also now created a separate email address for the Forum chair as well so that will be interesting to see what people write in about.
