Cheerleading at Cloverdale Court

On Saturday 24th June, residents at Cloverdale Court were treated to an energetic performance from a local cheerleading group, Unity, in the garden of Cloverdale Court. Tenants waved their pompoms with great enthusiasm, thoroughly enjoying themselves. Afterwards the girls from Unity made cards for the residents and spent time chatting with them.

Becoming a Digital Champion

Be a Digital Champion and help make a real difference…..

SHS has partnered with a company called Digital Unite to promote the use of “digital” with our tenants. We are currently seeking some Digital Champions to help share their knowledge with others – and you don’t need to be an expert!

Typical tasks of a Digital Champion include:

  • Teaching someone to use Google
  • Helping someone to set up an email account
  • Explaining and showing how easy on line shopping can be
  • Setting someone up on Skype
  • Helping someone research hobby ideas online.

If you would be interested in taking part, or in finding out more, I’d love to hear from you. Our Digital Champions are supported by local staff and by the Digital Unite Network.

Please send me an email at glynis.gatenby@shsoc.org.uk or ring on 0208 642 1500.

Millers Ark Farm

Millers Ark Farm comes to Cloverdale Court

On Friday 26 May, Sutton Housing Society and the Triangle Day Centre welcomed the Millers Ark Farm to Cloverdale Court, Wallington – and a wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by all.

Many tenants from the Housing with Care scheme and clients of the Day Centre, together with visitors from Sutton Housing Society’s Older Peoples schemes Trickett House and Robertson House, enjoyed a wonderful afternoon looking at and petting the goats, donkey, lambs, chickens and guinea pigs to name but a few.

This was a great event, bringing older people together, most of whom no longer have pets but are able to talk and reminisce about the pets and animals they have had throughout their lives.
