Denbighshire roadshows engage with tenants

Hundreds of housing tenants have taken part in a series of roadshows across Denbighshire.

Denbighshire County Council’s housing department hosted seven events over the summer to engage with tenants, provide free activities for children and to raise awareness of services available.

More than 500 tenants took part in the Denbighshire Housing roadshows in Denbigh, Rhyl, Prestatyn, Meliden, Dyserth, Rhuallt and Llangollen.

Cllr Tony Thomas, lead member for Housing, Regulation and the Environment, said: “The housing roadshows over the summer were a great chance for us to engage with tenants and provide fun activities for children. They were well attended and provided some great feedback and I’d like to thank everyone who took part.

“These events gave us the opportunity to talk to residents to get an understanding of the community and to share information about services that are available to them.

“Providing housing that meets the needs of Denbighshire residents is a priority for the Council.

“Denbighshire Housing will be providing 170 additional Council homes throughout the county over the next four years.”

Activities for children included face painting, arts and crafts, bridge making, sports games, robotic programing, virtual reality headsets and online safety while organisations who attended included North Wales Police, Age Connect, Menter Iaith as well as a number of Council services.
