Housing team spreads festive cheer

The Community Partnership Team at High Peak Community Housing have been spreading Christmas cheer in sheltered housing schemes for the elderly with a spot of Festive Flower arranging.

So far activities have taken place in Cromford Court at Whaley Bridge and Queens Court in Fairfield, Buxton; where approximately 20 residents have participated in some festive fun.

The Community Partnership Team felt that the majority of their projects focus on the younger generations within the High Peak, with elderly tenants sometimes being ‘forgotten’. With Christmas being the loneliest time of the year for the elderly, the team felt that some time should be spent with the older tenants and what better way to spend it than meeting up with friends, creating a Christmas flower arrangement and enjoying a quick cuppa and mince pie.
