Throughout December 2015, we delivered three Town and Country Pop Ups at Ardenhurst (sheltered scheme), Old Park estate, Dover and TN2 community centre in Sherwood.
These events enabled us to recruit customer panels, Community Neighbours and hold consultations on our digital inclusion access project. Two further community neighbour events were delivered in East and West Kent. In West Kent, we delivered presentations about estate inspections, health and wellbeing and promoted the ‘condensation champion initiative’, to tackle damp and mould.
Following our equivalent event in East Kent, we plan to deliver a more localised, bespoke approach to reflect the geographical spread of the region. This will involve developing new or working with existing small community groups who lend themselves to the Community Neighbour concept and ethos.
