An annual event has seen East Devon District Council tenants tackling a wide range of topics, including healthy meals, activities, local events for people to attend to help reduce isolation and speaking with staff and contractors about issues relating to their homes.
The healthy living and wellbeing conference was attended by around 80 people, including tenants, district council officers, contractors and councillors.
Tenants were able to meet staff, contractors, councillors and stall holders and ask them questions.
Community and staff awards were also presented to people who tenants thought deserved recognition for the work they do for others.
Councillor Pauline Stott, chairman of East Devon’s housing review board, said: “The conference was an excellent day with plenty of active participation, which everyone appeared to enjoy greatly. It was lovely for all the tenants to get together and to exchange views, as well as meet our officers. A good day was had by all.”
