Anniversary parties success
Celebration parties to mark the 50th anniversary of a housing association with properties in Leicester have seen professional entertainment, homemade food, and music among the activities enjoyed by guests.
Representatives from Probation and Leicester City Council were among those who attended the events, organised by Adullam Homes Housing Association staff and residents in the city.
At Norman House, quizzes created by Property Services and Operational Manager Tracy Ferguson and by one of the residents provided plenty of entertainment, and together with music got everyone involved.
A delicious buffet, with a curry made by resident Jobil as the centre piece, was served, with a brilliant birthday cake to follow.
As well as marking the anniversary, the event gave staff and residents, including ones who live in move-on accommodation managed by Adullam, a chance to talk about the service and discuss housing issues with commissioners and agency representatives.
Award-winning balloon artist Thelma, of Smudgy Entertainments, was the highlight of a second party, at Adullam’s Bethany Court. Residents who attended also enjoyed craft making, children’s games and balloon modelling. There was food and a cake too.
Commenting on the 50th anniversary events, Tracy Ferguson said:
Everyone involved in the two parties enjoyed themselves, we have had very positive feedback. They worked not only as entertainment, but as ways to bring different people together, raise awareness and even learn new skills. Thank you to everyone who supported and attended.”
