Residents' update Friday 17 September 2021

Many restrictions have now been lifted but it is still possible to catch and spread Covid-19, especially as we head into Autumn. 

Coronavirus cases are likely to rise so please remain cautious. Even if you’re fully vaccinated you can still catch and spread Covid-19.

Click here for some useful tips on how you can reduce the chance of catching and passing the virus on. 

Government guidance is likely to change over the coming months. For the latest updates please keep an eye on: gov.uk/coronavirus

 

Award nominations at the double 

We’re delighted to announce PCH has been shortlisted for two awards. Firstly, our efforts to stay in touch with our tenants have been recognised after being shortlisted for the Outstanding Tenant Engagement award - by the national industry body Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS).   

But the good news doesn’t stop there… Just this week PCH was nominated for the Built Environment and Infrastructure prize, from the Plymouth Live Business Awards. 

The Plymouth Live Awards ceremony will be held at Pavilions on 3 November and the TPAS virtual awards will go ahead virtually on 8 October. 

 

Have your say on how homes look

On 21 October PCH will be holding its annual South West Residents’ Design Conference. Talks will be held on rewilding green spaces and energy efficient ways of powering homes.   

The event will be hosted from Plymouth Community Homes Headquarters, Plumer House, where you can either attend in person, or via a virtual platform. 

If attending in person tea, coffee and lunch will be provided. 

21 October 2021 - 10.30am until 3.30pm

 

Winter is coming

As the nights begin to draw-in over the coming weeks, it will soon be time to pop the central heating on again. 

There are a few simple steps you can take at home to prevent common problems with heating and water. 

On the PCH website there are several handy video guides for maintaining your boiler during colder months.
