Home meetings are more friendly
The word seems to have gone round that if anybody wants to have a one-to-one meeting with me, my house is the preferable place - it's a more friendly atmosphere. I don't mind who wants to see me to discuss anything but travelling to offices all over the place even if they compensate you for travel expenses is so inconvenient.
Yesterday received two of United House management team. I really appreciated their effort because Swanley, UHL's base to London is not an easy journey - I've done it before. It's also gratifying to know my feedback from visiting residents is considered important enough for officialdom to arrange such meetings. On their part it also gives them the opportunity to look at the property and my flat as one of those refurbished under Islington's PFI program.
Last month the head of Housing management came round to discuss forum matters. He also took the opportunity to have a good look at this property and took some great photos. He's somebody I really like - with problematic residents cases he often visits personally.
He looked at my garden area which is bit sad at the moment. The ground is being contaminated by cleaning chemicals and other muck from the higher level. From my window you can actually see the water flow under the dying grass. The use of biodegradable cleaning stuff would be a start. Was in two minds to abandon the garden completely, will take time but the problem will be sorted. Waiting for an official soil tester, then perhaps the grass will all have to be dug up and turf laid.
